Our Programs


Give65

One in seven seniors is living in poverty. To maintain their quality of life, many seniors rely on the nonprofit sector for basic needs like meals, transportation, housing, senior center activities and so much more. GIVE65, the signature program of the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation, is an online giving platform committed to honoring all seniors and their aging journey by partnering with nonprofit organizations to inspire greater charitable giving in support of seniors.

Through the GIVE65 Event, a 65-hour online giving event held in July, nonprofits can rally their communities to raise funds, recruit volunteers and increase awareness for senior-focused programs and services that are giving seniors hope! The Foundation’s GIVE65 Incentive Fund provides matching and financial awards to incentivize giving. At GIVE65.org donations of $10 or more can help seniors in need of food, shelter, transportation, senior center activities and so much more! Visit GIVE65.org to learn more!

Be a Santa to a Senior

The Be a Santa to a Senior program was established in 2003 with the intent to spread holiday cheer to isolated seniors who might not otherwise receive a gift or a visit from a family member during the holidays. Since then, hundreds of thousands of seniors have benefited from a wrapped gift or a friendly visit during a season that can feel lonely to seniors. The Foundation is able to accept monetary gifts via cash or credit card in support of community-based Be a Santa to a Senior programs coordinated by Home Instead Senior Care franchise offices across the country.

Disaster Relief Fund

When a disaster is presidentially declared, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation comes to the rescue with the help of generous donations to the Disaster Relief Program. The Home Instead Senior Care franchise network comes together to bring immediate relief grants to CAREGivers and key players impacted by the disaster. These grants provide essentials such as food, water, clothing and shelter during these difficult times.
