HFC (Hilarity for Charity)

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Welcome to HFC!

Hilarity for Charity (HFC) is a national non-profit on a mission to care for families impacted by Alzheimer's disease, activate the next generation of Alzheimer's advocates, and be a leader in brain health research and education.

Let’s face it—bringing up Alzheimer’s doesn’t usually make you the life of the party. Most people don’t want to think about dementia until they have to. Storytelling is a powerful tool to help bring light to Alzheimer's disease and dementia.  HFC's Humans of Dementia Storytelling Scholarship is open to high school and college students in the U.S. and Canada who have been impacted in some way by Alzheimer's disease. This scholarship focuses on storytelling as a tool to drive awareness and inspire change about Alzheimer's disease. Students are invited to submit a written or photo profile of someone living with Alzheimer's disease or who passed away from the disease.

2024 submission period is March 1 - May 1, 2024. Awardees will be announced no later than July 1, 2024. Please click "Guidelines" below to see detailed information about eligibility, guidelines, and scoring.
