Help Support our Seniors

Your donations help East Side Elders organize an afternoon of Fun and Games for our seniors. The generosity of our donors helps us provide snacks, prizes, and a few hours of cards, dominoes, bingo, and more!

Our programs provide opportunities for inter-generational connections! These connections are vital for building age-friendly communities. Help make hugs like this one possible by donating today.

The Elder Cafe is an opportunity for seniors to enjoy a free lunch and entertainment once a month. Your donations help pay for food, supplies, entertainment and more – help us keep this program going!

The East Side Elder Cafe Memory Wall is a great way to create a lasting memorial for your loved one.  We will add a “Virtual Brick” to our website with your special message and wishes.

Estate and Planned Giving

By including East Side Elders in your estate planning, you can help to ensure that older adults and their caregivers will continue to have access to the vital support and care that they need to age well.

You can designate East Side Elders as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy. Many such planned gifts can offer significant tax savings. In addition, some arrangements, such as charitable gift annuities, can offer you more income in your retirement years while also leaving a legacy gift that will help future generations of older adults.

We invite you to contact us to allow us to acknowledge your generous intentions, to answer any questions you may have or to discuss the benefits of various giving options.
