Give the joy of active living

We could not accomplish our mission without you. Your support helps create life-enriching opportunities for thousands of active adults in Tallahassee & Leon County. Contributions to the Tallahassee Senior Foundation make our programs possible. 

Because of you, TSC fulfills its mission to:

  • Encourage active living
  • Enhance optimal aging
  • Engage social fitness

Your gift ensures that the programs and activities you or your friends enjoy will continue now and into the future.

Donations

Every donation counts to bring programs that inspire active living, engagement, and independence to more seniors than ever before and help them stay active and connected through the Senior Center community.

Membership

Membership is significant in providing meaningful and engaging activities that inspire optimal aging, personal enrichment and well-being among older adults.

Payment Options

Automatic Payments are an easy way to spread out payments or increase your support, monthly or annually, from a checking account or credit card.

Consider an IRA Charitable Rollover

Your IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) = tax free charitable contribution. Taxpayers, age 70½ or older who are required to withdraw IRA funds may donate a portion of your RMD directly to an eligible charity, such as the Tallahassee Senior Citizens Foundation, and not have to pay taxes. Making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA – up to $100,000 – by the IRA trustee to a charitable organization, counts toward your minimum distribution requirement for the year and is nontaxable. Contact your IRA administrator to direct a charitable distribution on your behalf.
