SUPPORTING SENIORS THROUGH DONATIONS AND GIFTS
Your Gifts And Donations Make All The Difference
THANK YOU! YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS MEANS
As a non-profit, the services we provide our seniors are funded by grants and donations. While the grants are important, they are never guaranteed to be there year after year. DSCC and the seniors we serve rely on people – like you – to support us.
How To Support DSCC
There are many different ways that you can financially support DSCC so we can provide the services to our seniors. The easiest way to help is to simply give. You can use the form below to send a tax-deductible gift. DSCC will use your gift to where the need is greatest.
When you use the form below, you will be taken to a new, secure page where you can give to DSCC using a credit card.
Two Ways To Give Online
You can give to DSCC through online giving in two ways – as a ONE TIME DONATION or a RECURRING DONATION. While every gift is appreciated, a RECURRING DONATION is a gift that we can count on month after month to help us plan for services and also help us budget for future services that our seniors need.
Give By Mail
If you prefer to donate to DSCC by check, you can send a check directly to us at:
DuPage Senior Citizens Council
1990 Springer Drive, Lombard, IL 60148
Corporations have the unique ability to positively affect so many lives. Through our Corporate Giving Program, local businesses, corporations and organizations can become DSCC partners. Plus, when you become a corporate donor, we give back! For more about Corporate Giving, please visit our Corporate Giving Page.
Other Ways You Can Donate
In addition to a financial gift, there are several other ways you can help with your donation.
You may honor the accomplishments of friends or a loved one that has passed away by making a donation in their name.
To offer a memorial or tribute gift, simply check the box in the Giving Form and let us know the name of the person you wish to honor or remember.
There are many advantages to planned giving such as lifetime income, current income tax deductions and estate tax savings.
To learn more about Planned Giving to DSCC please contact us and we can help you.
Matching Gift donations are a great way to multiply the gifts to DSCC by working with your employer.
Check with your human resources department to find out if this option is available where you work.
To find out if your company matches employee donations, please call us at 630-620-0804.

Where Does My Donation Go?
When you donate to DSCC, 80% of your donation goes directly to the seniors by funding the senior programs in place. For more information on how we are good stewards of the money that is entrusted to us, visit our Where Does Your Donation Go page.
