Our monthly giving program is a convenient way to support the Alzheimer Society. A small monthly donation may not seem like much, but it all adds up to help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. You can join for as little as $10 a month – just 33 cents a day!

Why give monthly?

Bigger Impact – Monthly donations are one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to give; this means we can spend less time and money on administration and more on what matters.

Build it into your monthly budget – You can divide your annual donation into twelve equal payments and know that your gift works each month to support a cause you believe in.

Preparing for the Future – A regular and predictable source of income provides stability in program planning and allows us to prepare for the needs of tomorrow.

A donation of publicly traded securities is one of the easiest and most effective ways you can support the Alzheimer Society of Brant, Haldimand Norfolk, Hamilton Halton.

The Alzheimer Society will issue you a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the security on the date of transfer into our brokerage account. You can donate securities now or as part of your estate planning.

When you donate securities in-kind, you may benefit from the elimination of the capital gain accrued on the securities plus the donation tax credit. As such, it may cost you less to make a donation of securities than a donation of cash.

If you plan on making a donation, have your financial advisor review your portfolio to determine if there are any securities with large capital gains.
