The Madison Senior Center Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) entity, is organized exclusively for the benefit of the Madison Senior Center, an agency of the City of Madison, Wisconsin, to improve the recreational, intellectual, social, physical and mental well being of older adults; to carry out such purposes the corporation shall solicit and accept funds and other gifts for; and to provide grants for older adults in the Madison, Wisconsin metropolitan area.

Why Your Gifts Are Important

The Madison Senior Center Foundation, Inc. supports the Madison Senior Center Partnership Fund. The Partnership Fund is crucial to the Madison Senior Center because as the City of Madison provides the majority of the senior center budget by paying for salaries and building operating expenses, the money for activities and programming must still be raised. The Partnership Fund makes all of the following possible:

  • Educational Opportunities, Classes and Lectures
  • Health and Wellness Programs, Health Screenings
  • Dances and Performances
  • Special Events such as the Classic English Tea, Sunday Meals and art competitions
  • Support Groups
  • Intergenerational Programming
  • Senior Center online donation

Remembrance Gifts

A special way to donate to the Madison Senior Center Foundation is through a Remembrance Gift. This is a gift given on someone else's behalf - whether it is In Memory or In Honor of an individual, or in celebration of An Anniversary, Birthday or other occasion. You may choose to have the senior center acknowledge your special gift by writing a letter to the celebrated person or individual's family (the gift amount is not mentioned).

Credit card gifts of more than $100 can be made at (608) 266-6290. Your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law and will be acknowledged in The Messenger newsletter (the gift amount is not mentioned).
