How to Sponsor

Why We Need Your Support

The Council on Aging has been an independent, non-profit since 1974 serving Chatham County seniors by providing programs and services to keep them living at home longer and more safely.The Council is Chatham County’s main portal of entry to senior services, however we are not a County Department. The Council receives funding from Federal, State and County governments, but we must still raise a portion of our funding from private grants, donations, sponsorships and fundraising events.

Sending you a “Friend” Request

Being a “friend” of the Council with your sponsorship allows us to provide programs and services to more seniors, operate our two senior centers and develop our staff to be the best we can be.We are good stewards of your money.85% of our funding goes directly to programs and services. No champagne parties here!

​Thank you for your consideration!
