What is Social with a Purpose?

Social with a Purpose (formerly known as Coffee Break) is an annual fundraising and awareness event coordinated by local Alzheimer Society chapters across Ontario. Organizations are invited to host a Social with a Purpose any time during the month of September and October, in celebration of World Alzheimer’s Day. Social with a Purpose promotes the importance of socializing, staying in touch, and building strong, positive relationships with your friends, family, and community.

How to Host a Social with a Purpose

Use your Social with a Purpose fundraiser as an excuse to get together and connect with your friends, family, and community! From online card games, coffee breaks, spicing up your Zoom meetings with a game of BINGO, or creating your own way to virtually get together, you can support people living with dementia by turning your virtual social gathering into a fundraiser! Have an idea and want to get started? Register your fundraiser and receive a customized web page with a unique link to help promote your event.
