Opportunities to Help

The Foundation is making welfare-check calls during the COVID-19 public health crisis. If you know of a senior or you are a senior who could use a check-in during this time of self-isolation, email the name and phone number to us here to be put on the call contact list.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers willing to make calls to seniors in North County, please email us here.

We plan to re-open our office for in-person assistance in summer 2021. Please email us at to learn more about becoming an IRC volunteer or how to help.

       Assist in answering our phones
       at the Information Resource Center
The Information Resource Center (IRC) is a comprehensive center for North County seniors, their caregivers, and families dedicated to improving seniors' quality of life.  Open from 9 am to 1 pm each Monday through Friday, the IRC provides links to available resources in the areas of housing, home repair, transportation, food insecurity, emergency assistance, medical and mental health issues, legal issues, and more.  Would you love to help seniors?  We train and provide support for our IRC volunteers, and could use more!  Contact us today to learn more about becoming an IRC volunteer.
        Help Spread the Word
Help spread the word about our events, including our Awards Celebration "Tribute to Traditions" and the Festival of Trees. The funds raised go toward helping North County seniors in need.
             Staff Street Faire Booths and/or Community Event Booths
We have two part-time staff members and rely on the hands-on support from our all-volunteer board and many volunteers to serve our mission of helping seniors.  Volunteering with the Foundation helps build a sense of purpose and often results in the formation of life-long friendships.  We welcome volunteers in a variety of roles.  Contact us today to get involved with our volunteer opportunities.
       Consider the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing in Your
         Gift Planning
There are several ways that you can support the Foundation in your gift and estate plan. Working with you and your tax and financial advisors we can help you explore the options which range from bequests that don't impact your cashflow during your lifetime to gifts that may provide benefits to you and the Foundation during your lifetime.  For example, a retained lifetime estate where you donate a residence may result in a tax deduction while retaining the right to occupy the residence for your lifetime.  
The Foundation relies on donations to support North County seniors with our free services and resources.  Rest assured that funds donated to the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing benefit seniors throughout North San Diego County and that your donation will be received with the profound gratitude of the Foundation and those we serve.
