Local resource center invites donors to support seniors during 65-hour online giving event

Local resource center invites donors to support seniors during 65-hour online giving event

The senior population is rapidly increasing, yet, the pace of government and philanthropic support for seniors is not. Often times, public funding for services and programs that benefit seniors is the first to receive funding cuts. At the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing we know this all too well. Our services and programs are in high demand with the growing senior population, and we rely heavily on the generous support of the North County community to continue to provide these programs and services that empower seniors to remain independent and to age with dignity.

From July 9 to 11, the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is participating in the fourth-annual GIVE65 Event, a 65-hour online giving event to help nonprofit organizations serving seniors raise funds online and increase awareness. Senior-focused nonprofits from across the United States are participating. This year, we’re raising funds for the Senior Information Resource Center, a program dedicated to improving the quality of life for North County’s older adults.\

During the GIVE65 Event, we are also raising funds with the hopes of receiving up to $5,000 in matching funds from the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation ®. This allows gifts from the public the chance to have twice the impact.

“GIVE65 allows us to help seniors in our community while raising awareness of the critical need for the programs and services that so many rely on,” said Sarah Benson from the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing.

The 65-hour GIVE65 Event begins at 7 a.m. CDT on Tuesday, July 9 and concludes at 11:59 p.m. on July 11. This event is an initiative of the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation ® and the nation’s first and only crowd-fundraising platform focused on helping nonprofit organizations across the country raise funds for programs and services benefiting seniors.

“Every gift makes a difference in the life of a senior on the local level,” says Lenli Corbett, executive director of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation. “We’re excited to partner with the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing for the fourth-annual GIVE65 Event, and we are hopeful our partnership will inspire greater charitable giving in support of seniors who rely on the nonprofit sector to age with independence and dignity.”

To learn more about GIVE65, visit GIVE65.org. The donation page for the Foundation can be found at https://www.give65.org/FoundationforSeniorWellbeing. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible in the United States. For more information about the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing, visit www.thefoundationforseniorwellbeing.org or call 844-654-4636.
