Double Your Impact with a Matching Gift

A matching gift is an easy way to double your donation to the Alzheimer's Association, making an even bigger impact on the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Many companies provide matching charitable contributions for donations made by their employees.

Visit alz.org/walkmatch to see if your employer will match your donation. Include your Walk participant ID when submitting your match request to ensure funds are properly allocated. Email Sophie at shlesser@alz.org if you need help locating your participant ID.
