Other Ways to Give
Now more than ever, our seniors need your help. There are so many ways that individuals and companies can help! See some ideas below for ways businesses and people can promote positive aging in our communities.
Could your business support seniors in need? Partner with VANTAGE for some unique marketing benefits!
Workplace giving programs provide employees the chance to make a considerable impact on their community’s greatest needs. Many employers will provide a matching program, often doubling or tripling the impact of a single donation.
Matching gift programs are a tremendous benefit to employers as well as employees and is a simple process, usually managed by the Human Resource department.
Here is how it works:
- Check out the matching gift program list to see if your company offers to match employee donations. If your company’s name is not on the list, contact your company’s Human Resources or payroll department to ask if there is a matching gifts program.
- Contact your Human Resources or payroll department and request a matching gift form.
- Complete the form and send it to:
Attn: Director of Community Engagement
388 South Main Street Suite 325, Akron, OH 44311
VANTAGE Aging will verify the form and return it to your company. We will send you an acknowledgment letter when the match is received.
Many companies support local nonprofits by holding fundraising events including dress-down days, raffles, or special events. These are another great way to support VANTAGE Aging and we can even help by providing you with the branded promotional flyers to help promote your fundraising event!

When we receive your gift to honor someone special, VANTAGE Aging will send a card informing him/her of your thoughtful gift without reference to the amount and acknowledge the honor on our website under About Us/Funders/Partners/Donors.
Should you wish to make a memorial gift, a memorial recognition card will be sent to the immediate family informing them of your gift without reference to the amount. You will also receive a letter acknowledging your tax-deductible donation.
Your gift will be used to support seniors in need of services from our caring and expert team.
Sponsor a Senior
VANTAGE Aging needs help supporting seniors’ ability to live independently in their own homes and active in their communities. In lieu of making a cash donation, you may Sponsor a Senior and purchase the vital services a client needs to age at home, including Meals on Wheels, chore services for deep cleaning, or non-medical home care.
Services may be purchased as a one-time gift, to provide services for a week, a month, or a year. The senior you sponsor will receive a note explaining that their services have been sponsored through the generosity of a kind donor and you will receive a letter acknowledging your tax-deductible donation.
