Making a major gift

Individual philanthropists, grant-making trusts and foundations play a pivotal role in funding our work. Find out more about making a major gift.

We value the bespoke nature of our relationship with each donor, and we work collaboratively to achieve the greatest impact possible for people affected by dementia. We provide detailed reporting on the impact of giving and host special events in recognition of our supporters. 

If you are a trustee or have links with a charitable trust, foundation or other voluntary funding body, or would personally like to make a difference to someone affected by dementia, please help us.

Every donation we receive enables us to continue providing vital support and information to people with dementia, their carers and their families, and to help us continue our groundbreaking research. 

If you are considering making a major gift to support the work of the Society, email the Philanthropy team on [email protected] or call 020 8049 9059. Alternatively, call 0207 423 3516 to find out more about our work and how you can help.

Here's how your support could help people with dementia:

  • £11,200 could pay for eight people affected by dementia to go along to a weekly peer support session for a year. Group members can make new friends, share experiences and be honest, without fear or embarrassment.
  • £25,000 could pay for a Side by Side service to run for six months, helping people with dementia to enjoy their favourite activities and feel less isolated.
  • £85,000 could fund a talented PhD student three years in to researching the cause, care cure and prevention of dementia.
