Change Makers – Next Gen Philanthropy

Girls Sunset

The CHeBA Change Makers are an exclusive group of next generation philanthropists aged 18-40 who are supporting critical research into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias for a brighter future in ageing.

With a vision of empowering emerging leaders, this initiative launched on World Alzheimer's Day in partnership with KPMG Australia, and promotes the importance of modifiable lifestyle factors to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.  It is led by Spokesman Richard Grellman AM and Ambassadors PJ Lane, Keri Kitay and Edward Caser.

As an organisation we are extremely proud of our people and the importance they place on social responsibility. I encourage our next generation leaders to get involved. 

Eileen Hoggett, KPMG National Managing Partner of Audit

Change Makers invest in the future, for a brighter future.

Change Makers support discovery, in support of tomorrow.

Change Makers promote the benefits of physical activity and
other lifestyle factors to reduce risk of dementia.


In Australia, dementia is the second leading cause of death – and by 2050 over one million Australians will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, overtaking heart disease as the leading cause of death. With dementia impacting more than 50 million people globally, get on board and become a Change Maker.


The Change Makers – Next Gen Philanthropy program provides the next generation of Australians with the opportunity to make an enormous difference, by combining regular giving donations to amount to larger, more impactful research contributions.

Change Makers will have access to tours in the CHeBA laboratory and educational workshops that cover healthy brain ageing and modifiable risk factors for dementia, geared specifically for an 18-40 audience. Importantly, Change Makers will create a better future by ensuring critical projects undertaken at CHeBA continue to create world-first breakthroughs into prevention and cure.
