How to Give

Gifts to Home Instead Senior Care Foundation come in many different forms and sizes.

Be a Santa to a Senior in Your Community

Since 2003, local Home Instead Senior Care franchise offices have partnered with local non-profit and community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts during the holiday season. Home Instead Senior Care Foundation is excited to offer the opportunity to accept your donation in support of the Be A Santa To A Senior program in your community.

Support our GIVE65 Event

From July 11-13, 2017, we will run our second annual fundraising event to benefit nonprofits serving seniors. You can either choose to support a participating nonprofit’s fundraising project, or give to our GIVE65 Incentive Fund, which provides funds for donation matches and other incentives to participating organizations.

Gifts by Cash, Check or Credit Card

We accept gifts of cash, check or secure online giving on this website. You may also wish to visit to select a nonprofit program or service to benefit from your secure, online credit card donation.

Honor Your CAREGiverSM

This special program provides an opportunity to honor a Home Instead Senior Care® CAREGiver who has made a positive, lasting impact. The CAREGivers receive a special letter to inform them that a gift has been made in their honor. In addition, the Home Instead Senior Care franchise owner that employs the CAREGiver is notified of the tribute gift. Gift amounts are kept confidential.

Memorial or Honor Gifts

Making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one is a touching tribute to their life and legacy. All gifts are recognized with a receipt letter to the donor as well as an acknowledgment letter that is thoughtfully crafted to the honoree or family of the remembered.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities help a donor support the mission of the Foundation while avoiding capital gains and earning a charitable tax deduction.


A pledge agreement allows a donor to make a contribution to be paid over a period of years.

Planned Gifts

There are many legacy gifts to consider. You may wish to remember the Foundation in your will or choose any other planned gift option.
