Ways to Support NEST

It Takes a Village to Support a Village



Donate Now:  Help NEST Support its 10-Year Anniversary 

Donations to NEST directly impact the lives of older adults in NE Seattle by connecting them with NEST groups, events and supports that further our mission of helping older adults stay independent, engaged, and connected to their community. Learn more about NEST’s programs and activities.

Your contribution goes directly to support NEST’s ongoing and special programs planned in 2021-2022, our members, and outreach and engagement of the entire NE community, including over 30,000 adults ages 55+.

Donate with our secure credit card option, or send a check with your contribution today.

  • $5000 – Covers recruitment and onboarding costs of 50 new volunteers to provide direct support to NEST members and the community, allowing us to continue our Low Vision and On Our Own Again support groups, build our ConnectsTeam of social workers, recruit and schedule volunteer drivers to medical appointments, vaccine outreach, facilitate social connections, and more
  • $2500 – Introduces NEST to the NE Seattle community and helps cover direct costs of our upcoming ‘The Third Act’ speaker and panel discussion on how to approach this stage of our lives with joy and excitement, NEST 10-Year Anniversary Community Celebration, and the Night Out for NEST local restaurant event
  • $1000 – Covers recruitment and supervision of NEST’s highly-qualified graduate student interns for special just-in-time projects, such as raising health care providers’ awareness of NEST’s social and other benefits, to support elders in our community

We accept financial donations year-round to support NE Seattle seniors, and highlight specific needs during our fundraising drives and events.  During our Into the Spring Sun Fundraising Drive, your contributions will support new and expanded programming, ongoing classes and activities for our area’s older adult community, outreach and engagement of NE Seattle with NEST, and more!  Help older adults continue to benefit from NEST’s programs as we reopen in-person and continue to provide support with information and resources around vaccinations and COVID safety.  Donate to help keep NEST strong.
