How your company can get involved

Charity of the Year

Many companies are discovering the benefits of working with Alzheimer's Society to motivate colleagues and make a step change for people living with dementia.

We'll work with you to devise an extensive programme of fundraising, events and involvement opportunities that will motivate and inspire your staff, and demonstrate to customers and the local community your commitment to supporting people affected by dementia. We will also look to develop strategic opportunities for your company to harness the skills set of colleagues and further increase the impact of your company on dementia.

Sponsorship

Connect with your target audience through one of our unique sponsorship opportunities. Sponsoring an Alzheimer's Society event, publication or project will help align your company with the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, increase brand exposure and engage new audiences. 

Cause related marketing

A cause related marketing partnership is a great way to associate your company with Alzheimer's Society, increase your presence in the community and connect with new and existing audiences whilst generating income for your company and Alzheimer’s Society.

Strategic partnerships

Strategic partnerships are an exciting way to link our work with your company's long term objectives. We will work with you to understand your main aims in supporting us and to develop long term partnership strategies to realise these goals. We will look to utilise the skills sets and expertise within your company to develop systems and products to impact the lives of people living with dementia. 

Another key element to the success of a strategic partnership is the fulfillment of Pro Bono project work. Through our strategic partnership with your company we will look to develop projects to help us free up resources and allow us to benefit from the input of expertise within your company.

Payroll giving

Setting up payroll giving or 'give as you earn' means that you and your colleagues can give to our vital cause and make a real difference for people with dementia the whole year round.

As well as being quick to set up and simple to manage, payroll giving is one of the easiest ways to support Alzheimer's Society, and it's tax free if you are a UK taxpayer.

Gifts In Kind

From raffle prizes to professional services, donations don't have to take the form of cash. Gifts in kind support our work whilst showcasing your company's products or services.

Events

With a catalogue of skydives, cycle rides, treks and runs, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with our general events series. Fundraising for an event is a great way to get your whole team involved in fun activities whilst raising money to help people with dementia.

We can also help you to run bespoke events just for your company, what about wine tasting for colleagues and clients, or a cycle challenge to get staff out and about and fit for summer?

The difference your company will make by partnering with us

By supporting Alzheimer's Society, your company will make a huge difference to the thousands of families living with dementia across the UK

£1,000 could pay for 5,000 copies of our 'Understanding and respecting the person with dementia' factsheet to be available for families and carers of people with dementia.

£12,500 could help our trained Dementia Helpline Advisors provide information, support and guidance for nearly 1,000 concerned individuals.

£150,000 could pay for 10,000 people living with dementia to enjoy a Singing for the Brain session; which uses singing to enhance communication, confidence and well-being.

£600,000 could fund three research projects for three years to give us a better understanding of the underlying causes of dementia in the hope of developing a cure for the future.

£1,000,000 would provide 32,250 hours of one-to-one support from one of our Dementia Support Workers. These experienced professionals are a lifeline for people with dementia and their families and mean they don't have to face dementia alone.

Working together, we will raise awareness about dementia amongst your colleagues, and ensure people living with dementia get the support and help they need and deserve.
