Leave a gift in your Will
By remembering Arts 4 Dementia in your Will or by giving in memory of a loved one, you can help us provide access to stimulating arts opportunities for people affected by dementia.
What a gift in your Will can achieve
With your help, people living with dementia can live better for longer in the community. Creative engagement stimulates the brain and alleviates dementia symptoms, showing those who feel their lives are closing down that they can still develop new skills. Our aim is to facilitate access to local inspiring and empowering arts workshops for people living with dementia and their carers, across the UK.
A gift of just 1% makes a huge difference for us. Your support enables us to work with arts and heritage organisations, giving training, advice and running exhilarating pilot workshop programmes, (such as Poetry at the Southbank Centre or Ballet at the Royal Opera House) to help them develop sustainable arts programmes for communities affected by dementia.
I love watching J open up. It makes an enormous difference to my well-being – I’m not alone at home with doctors appointments.
– Quote from a carer at our Ceramics programme at the Garden Museum, Lambeth (Autumn 2017)

Giving in memory of a loved one
A gift in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to remember a life, whilst enabling us to reach out to more people affected by dementia in the community.
You can create a special fund in their memory with a page on Virgin Money Giving, or request that friends and family make a gift instead of flowers at the funeral or memorial service.
We would love to remember your friend or family member with a photograph and a note about their life on our In Memoriam page.
You can make your donation through the Donate page on our website, or make cheques payable to Arts 4 Dementia.
Please contact us if you’d like to have a chat about giving in memory.
