CaregiverRx Matching Gift Campaign Meets Fundraising Goal of $25,000!
We are thrilled to say that we reached our CaregiverRx Matching Gift Campaign Goal of $25,000!
We could not have done it without all of you, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
What is the Matching Gift Campaign?
Campaign ran from April 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017
Caring for someone with dementia is a 24/7 job. Caregivers juggle appointments, chores, and often new roles and responsibilities. Caregivers don’t get breaks, or take time off. Caregivers put their needs last, or forget about them entirely. Without the care and rest they need, caregivers are at risk of increased stress, health problems, and eventually, burnout.
This spring, help us provide caregiver relief by donating to the CaregiverRx Matching Gift Campaign.
Ground Effects Ltd. of Windsor, ON has pledged $15,000 to ASWE if generous donors help us raise the same amount by June 30, 2017.
That means that starting now, all donations received will go twice as far.
Consider showing your support for our caregivers when it will count for twice as much and help us spread the word about this exciting campaign.
Right now, it is estimated that over 564,000 Canadians are living with dementia. In 15 years, that number will increase by 66% to 937,000. Currently, there are over 7,120 individuals in Windsor and Essex County diagnosed with dementia and that number is steadily climbing.
Thank you for your support.
