Campaign runs: August to January (host your event any day!)
Coffee Break® has been one of the Alzheimer Society's biggest annual fundraisers for over 20 years, where friends, co-workers, and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at the event make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee.
Did you know that the amount you spend on your daily cup of coffee has the ability to have a positive impact on the people with Alzheimer's Disease and dementia in our community? Make your coffee count today!

Coffee Break events are held in homes, offices, community centers, schools, churches, city halls, retail outlets, and health facilities - just about anywhere coffee can be served and a donation collected. Over the years, Coffee Break® hosts have become very creative in their fundraising efforts, hosting BBQs, parties and even community challenges. Small or large, simple or elaborate, each break truly makes a difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
