Grants available for senior programs

A core group of individuals working together for several years has raised awareness and funds to support “wellness, dignity and independence of El Dorado County seniors and their caregivers.”  They call themselves the Friends of El Dorado County Seniors.

Through the newly created Friends of El Dorado Seniors Fund at the El Dorado Community Foundation, Friends of El Dorado County Seniors is ready for the first granting cycle, offering $3,000 in grants to local not-for-profit organizations serving El Dorado County seniors.

The El Dorado Community Foundation has long been aware of the specific needs of our older adult population and is proud to partner with Friends as they continue this important outreach.

A simple grant application form is available to qualifying organizations at the El Dorado Community Foundation Office, 312 Main St., Suite 201, Placerville, or one can be sent via e-mail by calling (530) 626-5621 and requesting a Friends of El Dorado Seniors grant application form.  Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, June 30, by mail to El Dorado County Seniors, P.O. Box 564, Placerville 95667 or by e-mail to  info@friendsofEDCseniors.org.

For more information or further assistance in applying contact Kathi Lishman at (530) 626-6323, chairperson of the Friends of El Dorado County Seniors.

The El Dorado Community Foundation is a designated 501(c)(3) by the IRS, and gifts to any of its 170 funds are tax deductible. Visit eldoradocf.org for further information about the work the foundation does for the benefit of this community and beyond.
