why be a donor
Senior Action is a vibrant, active, and growing organization that changes seniors’ lives every day. Seniors go from being isolated and alone to active, thriving, and engaged because of the programs we offer. We do it with the help of many committed individuals, businesses, and non-profit partners that also believe in investing in the lives of seniors. In fact, we would not be able to do any of it without them.
So, why would you want to support the work of Senior Action? There are many reasons, but just to name a few:
- Caring for seniors is expensive – Senior Action saves the community money. For an investment of only $450 a year, a senior can gain access to a wealth of services and activities. Comparatively, the median annual cost of an assisted living is $40,000.
- Currently, only 2% of charitable giving goes to support services for seniors. And, that has not changed in 20 years even though the percentage of the population who is senior has doubled in that time. Senior Action needs your support more than ever to keep up with the demands of this exploding population.
- Investing in seniors makes the whole community healthier. We need older adults living next door, serving on boards and councils, volunteering in our schools… it makes our whole community better.
