You Can Help

Your Gift is Essential

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 the elderly in our community. There are many ways you can help:

Annual Fund

As you can imagine, the responsibility of operating a large agency and providing for the elderly can be quite costly.   The cost of caring for the elderly in a manner respectful of their dignity far exceeds the income received from any grants we are able to get. You can donate to the annual fund through gifts of cash, checks, credit cards, stocks, bonds or other assets.

Planned Giving

Plan to make a difference in the lives of the elderly by including 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 department.


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 to help in a variety of meaningful ways. A call, a visit, a letter may make all the difference to an older person who needs to know there is someone out there who still cares.
