Ways to Give

Giving to seniors NE FL

You are essential to the delivery of services to Seniors! Without you giving to Seniors in Northeast Florida, many in our community would not be able to live with dignity on their own.

Your support helps ensure that ElderSource, the Area Agency on Aging and Aging resource Center for Northeast Florida, through the efforts of Friends of ElderSource, continues our work in the community by meeting the known and emerging needs of seniors. A gift to Friends of ElderSource – any size – supports all of the programs and services that ElderSource offers and direct funds where the most pressing need is at a given time.

Friends of ElderSource is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (EIN #27-1455873), that directly supports ElderSource, relies on various philanthropic agencies, corporations, foundations, individuals, and grants for its funding support for over 12,000 Seniors and Families each year.

Remembering ElderSource in Your Planned Giving.
You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.

Planned gifts create unique opportunities for donors to support organizations that share like-minded values such as ElderSource’s. A planned gift balances your desire to support Friends of ElderSource with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals. Planned giving may also allow you to make a larger gift than you thought was possible. It is important to determine what gift is right for you. There are many options from which you can choose, depending on what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.

Here are a few ideas to leave a legacy with ElderSource.
Options for Planned Giving may include:

  • Make an unrestricted will/bequest
  • Donate your life insurance proceeds
  • Gift securities held in your name
  • Donate proceeds from a retirement plan
  • Create a Charitable Lead Trust
  • Create a Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Gift title to real estate you own

Donors must consult their tax and legal advisers regarding their specific situation or interest. For more information about making a planned gift to ElderSource, or if you have already made arrangements to do so, please contact us so we may help you with the process. For direct questions contact Heather Corey, Director of Development, at (904) 391-6679 or by email to heather.corey@myeldersource.org.
