Ballard NW Senior Center Members support the programs and services the Center offers to the Ballard, Magnolia, and Queen Anne neighborhoods in Seattle.
Do you, a friend, or family member visit the Ballard NW Senior Center for classes, groups, services, or events? Membership supports these programs.
Center Membership is not required to participate in our activities but there are benefits to being a Member both for us and our neighborhoods.
What are the benefits of Membership?
Members receive the Ballard NW Senior Center Newsletter both mailed and electronically, invitations to special events, discounts on most of the Ballard NW Senior Center’s classes, trips, and services, and free Birthday lunch.

People can become Members at any time during the year, but the best benefit is to join or renew in autumn. New Members can get two extra months (November & December) by signing up for a Membership starting November 1st. People who sign up before January 31st also receive three gift certificates.

How does Membership support the programs of Ballard NW Senior Center?
Membership financially supports the running of the Center. While the center serves around 4,000 individuals, only 300 to 400 actually become members. If 500 people join and save themselves a lot of money over the year, the center still gets $25,000. If 1,500 joined, the center would receive $75,000. Think how much less fundraising we would have to do and how much more programs and services we could offer.
Thank you for your participation!
