Cheque Presentation

The Young Leaders Council (YLC) of the Alzheimer Society of Toronto (AST) is a group of community-minded young professionals who are passionate about making a difference in the Alzheimer’s community. We aim to increase public awareness for Alzheimer’s disease while generating funds to support the work being done at Alzheimer Society of Toronto.

Formerly known as Young People Against Alzheimer’s, the Young Leaders Council is the organizing body behind Memory Ball – a highly anticipated yearly fundraising event that in the past six years, has raised more than $410,000!

Membership Requirements

There’s just one. Since the goal of the Young Leaders Council is to raise funds and awareness for AST, we ask that each member sign-up for monthly giving with a minimum monthly donation of $10.

Every gift makes a difference and monthly giving is a great way to contribute a dependable source of funding to AST.
