Many ways to give

Dear Senior Center Friend,

We could not accomplish our mission without you.

Thanks to you, Lifelong Learning has accelerated, Travel continues to keep people on the road, Health & Wellness helps more people stay fit, Art is amazing and your Leon County centers are thriving. As you make decisions about your giving options, I ask you to remember the Tallahassee Senior Foundation.

The Tallahassee Senior Center provides 180 different activities or special events for active adults age 50+. We are fortunate to be a service of the City of Tallahassee. which supports our facility needs and most of our infrastructure expenses. However, it is the financial support of the Foundation and people like you who make our programs possible.

Because of you, TSC fulfills its mission, which includes:

  • Encouraging active living
  • Enhancing optimal aging
  • Engaging social fitness

Your gift ensures that the programs and activities you or your friends enjoy continue.

I look forward to getting to know you at the Tallahassee Senior Center. We hope to see you often at one of our many programs or events.

With gratitude,

Sheila Salyer

Executive Director

Legacy Circle

The Tallahassee Senior Center is on a trajectory of growth, bringing programs that inspire active living, engagement, and independence to more seniors than ever before. With two universities, a large community college, quality health facilities, and a thriving cultural scene, Tallahassee is a top destination for active boomers and retirees.

The Legacy Circle includes donors who name the Tallahassee Senior Center Foundation as a beneficiary of a planned gift, which helps ensure quality services for generations of seniors to come. Planned giving benefits you and your family – not just your beneficiary. Making decisions now guarantees that your estate plans – and your legacy – support the Tallahassee Senior Center.

If you are exploring estate-planning options, we have local experts and other community resources available to help you make informed decisions – no matter where you choose to leave your legacy gift. Through the Legacy Circle, we host accounting and estate-planning speakers several times each year, and we celebrate those individuals who have chosen to create a lasting legacy at the Senior Center.

Please consider leaving a legacy gift that will help ensure we meet seniors’ needs for years to come.
