How to Help


Fortuna Senior Centers’ mission is to empower, enrich and involve seniors of the Eel River Valley area. FSC offers social and recreational opportunities, combating isolation and promoting good health. Social activity and intellectual stimulation not only contributes to physical and mental health, but actually increases overall life expectancy and reduces likelihood of dementia.

While public funding for important social services programs is increasingly scarce, we are daily reminded that much more must be done The only way this can happen is with the generosity of ordinary people like you, and  enlightened businesses, dedicated foundations, and committed community organizations.

With your donations, bequests and other gifts, you make an important difference. What more satisfying and direct way to offer thanks to those who have made a difference in our own lives?  Gifts large and small are all important. 

Charitable giving is not only for the wealthy.  In fact, recent statistics tell us over 90 percent of the wealthiest leave nothing to charity.  Fortuna Senior Services, Inc. is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit corporation, which means your donations are fully tax deductible.

Our legacy will be what we do with the time we have on this earth.  The old chestnut comes to mind,  “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”  Never more true. The proof is that the donors tell us they get more satisfaction back than they give.
