Gifts are essential in helping our agency meet the day-to-day needs of our clients. Without your help, we would be unable to touch the hearts of older adults in our community. There are many ways you can help.
The cost of caring for senior citizens in a manner respectful of their dignity far exceeds the income our grant receipts. Our fee-based services cover a portion, but not all, of our programs and operations. We accept the following kinds of donations to our annual fund: cash, checks, credit cards, stocks, bonds or other assets.
While You Shop
ElderServe is registered with Kroger’s Community Rewards program. When you enroll in the Kroger rewards program, the grocery company will make a donation based on your purchases.
When you order from Amazon using the https://smile.amazon.com/ URL and choose ElderServe as your charity, then the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to ElderServe.
You can make a difference in the lives of our senior citizens by remembering ElderServe in your will or estate planning. Bequests are one of the most meaningful sources of funds for our mission. Through the foresight and generosity of others, ElderServe is able to continue to serve the elderly in our community.
Estate gifts can be made through a variety of vehicles: your will, a living trust, a life insurance beneficiary and other simple options.
In addition, there are great tax benefits that can come from your gift. Planning ahead can benefit you as well as ElderServe. For more information, contact our development director, Lisa Cobb, at 502.736.3825.
Many senior citizens in our community have spent a great deal of their lives in service to others. Some are still able to open their hearts to those in need.
Whatever your age or abilities, you can show you care by volunteering. A call, a visit, a letter may make all the difference to an older person who feels lonely or isolated.
