It starts with you
The best thing about hosting an event is that it can be anything you want! We’ve seen some pretty spectacular events throughout the years, and we get so excited when people tell us what they’re planning!
Some people choose to run events on their own, and others form a group to share the load. Sometimes your workplace might even agree to run it for you, as they’re often looking for staff social activities.
Whatever you choose to do, Dementia Australia is incredibly grateful. We rely on wonderful people from the community (like you!) to help us raise vital funds.
We really couldn’t do it without you!
Host a BBQHave a fun filled day flipping sausages with your family, friends or colleagues to make a difference. Who doesn’t love a sausage in bread!
Fancy a round of golf?
A group of friends turned their Saturday golf catch up into a club wide Golf Day fundraiser, talk to your club manager next time you play a round.
Time for a new do?
Shave your beard (or head)! Take on the commitment of shaving your beard or head and send a powerful message to everyone that you are making a difference.
Are you a performer?
Are you a budding musician, dancer or singer? Then organise a charity performance night inviting all of your fans.
If you are looking for something a little more formal why not host a cocktail party or gala evening. Drinks, canapes, raffles, an auction and of course dancing the night away. Now, what to wear?
Host an ExhibitionIf you’re the creative type why not hold an art or photography exhibition. You could even auction off some of your work to help raise funds!
What are fundraisers saying?
I wanted to honour the impact she had on my life and help raise funds for dementia, and this was made possible through running the Adelaide Marathon. I was able to couple my passion for running with a strong desire to raise funds for dementia and honour Nonna Ida.

It was a great opportunity for team building and networking with people from other Councils. City of Burtnside staff voted Dementia Australia to be the charity partner for the 2019 Metro Games, with participating Councils raising total of $4,000.

As Nanna loves to colour in, I came up with an idea of designing a colouring book, 'Inspired by Nanna'. I wanted to be able to help raise funds, awareness and also help to improve the quality of life of people living with dementia.

Fundraising with Dementia Australia was uplifting, with support and guidance being given at every step of the 12 month journey. We can't wait to do it all again with you!
