Making A Contribution
 
SASC is a charitable non-profit 501(c)3 organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. All donations to SASC are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
 
Programs at the Senior Center and Adult Care Center are funded almost entirely by member fees, donations, and memberships.
 
Our needs are varied and we maintain an ongoing wish list for donations . Of course, cash contributions are always welcome. But SASC also benefits from receiving a broad range of donated items or services. Planned gifts from bequests, trust distributions, insurance, IRA balances, or appreciated stocks and bonds are also useful.

Cash/Appreciated Stocks or Similar Property
 
SASC must raise a large proportion of it's operating budget via private donations per year to keep our current programs in full operation. A donor is welcome to specify a purpose for the gift or to simply allow SASC to direct the gift where most needed.
 
Donors may choose to send memorial gifts to recognize a recently deceased acquaintance. SASC will notify remaining family members in the donor's behalf. Recognition gifts to celebrate a friend's or one's own significant birthday, anniversary or other achievements are another option.
 
Businesses may elect to sponsor specific program events throughout the calendar year.
 
SASC documents all cash or cash-equivalent donations with appropriate receipt and Thank You letters.
