Aging True’s programs and services are made possible through monetary and in-kind service contributions of individuals and companies across Northeast Florida. Donations of any size can have a direct and immediate positive impact on at-risk seniors.

In-Kind Donations & Medical Equipment
Aging True doesn’t traditionally accept in-kind donations of physical items (food items, medical equipment, etc.). For any questions or to inquire about a special partnership, please direct inquiries to 904-807-1307.
Sponsorships and partnerships are available. Corporations wishing to inquire about these opportunities should contact Chris Mahon, Director of Development.
A planned gift is a gift deferred – a way of expressing your wishes now about how your resources are to be used later. A planned gift is a commitment made to protect those you love – and an opportunity to benefit Aging True for years to come.
Planned giving is frequently associated with wealthy individuals and families who desire to make substantial charitable contributions. In reality, the tool is a valuable method in which even donors of modest means can make a meaningful difference in Aging True and the elders we serve.
Spend a moment and review the ways in which you and your family can make a living legacy to Aging True. Whether it is a bequest (gift through your will), designating beneficiaries or establishing a trust, we are willing to work with you to find the most appropriate method to meet your charitable desires without taxing your existing income.
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
- To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of our capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
- To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
- To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
- To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
- To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
- To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
- To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
- To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
- To know that the organization will never share your name or any other personal information with any other organization outside the college and the foundation.
- To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
