Leadership Giving

Woman and man smiling“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~ Winston Churchill

It is hard to imagine what life would be like growing old and frail, living homebound with a chronic illness, or barely making ends meet on a very low income.

Ballard NW Senior Center’s Leadership Circle supporters are the foundation of our strong community network of support. They care deeply about our mission, raise public awareness about the needs of seniors, and inspire others to give a helping hand to our elderly neighbors. Joining Ballard NW Senior Center’s Leadership Circle with an annual gift of a $1,000 or more (individually or in combination with a spouse or partner) means you:

  • Are deeply committed to our core mission
  • Help Ballard NW Senior Center create a sustainable funding stream
  • Personally provide the financial support to ensure our programs will remain a vital resource for thousands of local seniors

As a Leadership giver, you can be certain your gifts are invested where they will have the biggest impact. Here are a few examples of what your leadership gift of $1,000 (or $84 a month for one year) can provide:

  • 125 delicious hot lunches made from scratch at one of our Community Dining sites
