Donate to Senior Services
Our purpose is to be here for today’s and tomorrow’s elders. We’re helping to support you today and build a support network for your future. Your donations make that possible.
Island Senior Resources is not a county-run agency. We are a 501 (c)(3)* and we depend upon United Way funding, government contracts, and grants. 16% of our funding comes from contributions from people like you.
*Our tax ID # is available upon request
Who Benefits From Donations?
If you are caring for a parent or aging family member, if you have used, or are currently using, services for seniors, you’ve benefitted from something that other farsighted, generous folks have made possible.
Donations enable us to offer meals and services (medical equipment loans, health services, etc) for low, or no fees. For example, a simple donation of $25 helps supplement home delivered meals to 5 individuals. Island Senior Resources has been the leading resource for seniors in Island County for 35 years. We work quietly behind the face of well-known programs to support more than 16,000 seniors throughout Island County.
- The General Fund helps provide general operating support for all programs.
- Adult Day Services sustains seniors and their caregivers who are in need of support.
- Meals on Wheels provides nourishment for those unable to leave their homes.
- The SSIC Foundation Endowment ensures funding of senior programs for years to come.

Last But Certainly Not Least…
Your time, your influence, your energy are all currency that is valuable to an agency such as ours. It’s true that gifts of money are critical to keeping services viable and available but gifts of time, skill and friendship circles are crucial in their own ways too.
Everyone has something that someone else could use. Think about what you can give and realize that what is commonplace for you may be a treasure to someone else for whom it is rare.
“I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
