“It matters not how long we live, but how.”-Philip James Bailey
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy risks live and limb to return home, because that’s where she is surrounded by love and friendship. Isn’t that what we all want?
As we grow older, most of us picture ourselves living out our lives in our own home, where we feel comfortable and secure, surrounded by good memories. Then life happens, and we need a little help—a ride to the doctor, help with shopping, changing a light bulb, or some light yardwork. And suddenly, our choice to age in place is at risk.
That’s where EFS comes in.
YOUR DONATION MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE
EFS provides these exact kinds of services to our clients for free, and your generous tax-deductible donation makes it possible. Together, we can continue meeting the needs of seniors in our community and help them to live where they feel the best.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Cash gifts: a donation in cash is always the most efficient way to support what we do, because cash can be applied immediately to priority areas-of-need. You may send a check (see below), make an online donation (see button below), call us at 425-369-9120 with your credit card number, or pledge your gift over several months.
Make checks out to Eastside Friends of Seniors and mail to:
1121 228th Ave SE

Tribute Gifts: You can make your gift in honor or memory of someone. Just let us know who and where to send a note announcing your thoughtful gift.
In-kind gifts: We welcome in-kind gifts, such as graphic design, website design, help with fundraising, and so forth. Please contact us if you are interested in sharing your time and expertise.
Volunteering: Our volunteers provide the core services that allow seniors in our community to remain independent and safe. Please give us a call or send us an email if you would like to know more about how you can make a difference in the life of a senior.
Stock Gifts: We accept gifts of marketable securities. Our policy is to immediately sell gifted stock. The donor will receive a tax deduction for the gift (the average of the high and low value on the day it was gifted). Please let us know in advance if you plan to make a stock transfer in our name.
Bequests: EFS plans to be here for the long-term. Please consider adding us to your will for a portion or the remainder of your estate. We can provide you with bequest wording.
Donate Your Car: EFS now accepts vehicle donations. We’ve partnered with CARS, a non-profit dedicated to helping other non-profits increase fundraising efforts by accepting vehicle donations. They accept any type of vehicle (running or not) including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, and most other motorized vehicles. They make it easy for you to donate by picking up your vehicle for free and guiding you through the steps necessary to complete your donation.
