Foundation News

Public funding for services to seniors has been decreasing for some time due to demands on the State and County economy, even as the number and longevity of older adults continue to increase. More so now than ever, many seniors need help with nutrition, transportation, health services and housing. The FOUNDATION ON AGING provides the ideal vehicle for private citizens, businesses and philanthropic organizations to collaborate with the Riverside County Office on Aging to respond to the diverse programmatic needs of older adults. You may be surprised to learn that the senior population is projected to more than double by 2030.

Ways to Support

The Foundation supports its work through donations and gifts. With your help, older adults who are vulnerable, at risk, and who may also be homebound, will be sure to receive the support to age with dignity, respect and independence.

Won’t you please help us protect seniors from the problems that can result from poor nutrition, lack of transportation and isolation?

Your contributions will directly help seniors in need. Work with us to strengthen, expand, and support senior programs.
