Many of you know, but for those that don’t, Circle Center’s fiscal year wraps up on June 30th. So every year at this time, we launch our ambitious spring fundraising campaign.

And this year, with your help, we hope to raise $40,000 by June 30th.

A gift to Circle Center has a ripple effect. That’s because our mission is designed to help older adults and their families, particularly those family members who take on the Herculean task of caregiver.

Why give? The demographics speak for themselves. The U.S. populations is older today than it has ever been, dementia diagnoses are on the rise, and we’ve got less caregivers per individual. It is the perfect storm for social isolation and loneliness, which have been proven to be both mentally and physically debilitating. In fact, lacking social connection can increase the risk for premature death as much as smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day.*

Circle Center is an antidote to this growing crisis and a way for older adults to experience joy, friendship, and healthier aging, in a safe and supportive environment. While at the same time, our program provides respite, resources, and some sense of life balance to their devoted family caregivers.

Please consider making a gift by June 30th so that we can continue to serve those we already do, and provide opportunities for more older adults and their caregivers to benefit from our mission.
