Annual Giving

Gifts to Annual Giving are the lifeblood of the Sheridan Senior Center. They make possible a wide variety of special uses and projects that would otherwise go unfunded. Annual giving takes place primarily with two annual campaigns called Holiday Spirit and Operation Independence. It is the only fundraising program of the Senior Center that reaches all friends, family, and employees on a yearly basis to offer giving opportunities for direct support of the Center’s programs.  he Sheridan Senior Center Annual Giving focuses on acquiring regular, annual contributions, thus creating a dependable and very important source support for Sheridan County’s only senior center. Contributors to the Annual Giving program may designate their gifts to any area or program within the Center.  

Holiday Spirit
This annual holiday campaign is typically sent to the community in November as an opportunity for individuals to consider supporting the work of the Center and more importantly the services that make a difference in the lives of people in our community. Holiday Spirit is one of the Center’s most recognized giving opportunities, with donors published in the Center Stage Newsletter and on the Center’s website. The annual campaign allows the Center to plan for the future and build needed options into current programming.

Operation Independence
Operation Independence is an annual campaign sent to the community, typically the end of June. This campaign, similar to Holiday Spirit seeks the support of friends, family and employees to support the work of the Center and provide services throughout Sheridan County. Through Operation Independence, donors can make sure someone they know or love is well cared for.  For example, through these contributions elders can remain in their home for about 1/5 of the cost of institutionalization or ride on the Mini Bus public transportation or get much needed respite care. Operation Independence truly celebrates the older adults of our communities, especially their gifts and talents.
