On “Giving Tuesday,” SAGE Eldercare will be one of 4,500+ partners around the world who are seeking to jump start the giving season.  The day, which will occur on Tuesday, December 3, follows both “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” and proves that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back. 

 “In addition to ‘Giving Tuesday,’ we are also asking donors to check and see if their company doubles donations with a matching gift program,” stated Dawn Knill, Director of Development for SAGE.  “SAGE’s Annual Fund is the foundation of our philanthropic support.  These gifts are an important source of unrestricted funds and underwrite a significant portion of our general operating budget.”

New Jersey is currently the second largest home for older adults in the United States and, by 2030, older adults will represent at least a quarter of New Jersey’s total population.  As a result of the recession, older adults’ financial stability has been shaken and many struggle to afford critical services they need to be cared for at home.  SAGE relies on the support and generosity of the community to help provide programs and services to local older adults so they can be cared for during these especially challenging times.

Donations for SAGE’s Annual Fund can be made online at www.sageeldercare.org or if someone has questions or wants to donate by check, inquiries can be directed to 908-598-5503 or dknill@sageeldercare.org.  

“An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.  Many corporations match employee donations to our organization.  Additionally, if you volunteer with us, your employer may provide us with a grant or contribution as a way to recognize your ongoing support,” noted Ms. Knill.  To check your employer’s participation, visit http://doublethedonation.com/sageeldercare.

Giving Tuesday, which is in its second year, was designated to help change the national dialogue about giving and mobilize an “opening day” for charitable giving and volunteer support for causes, large and small, across the United States and around the world.

A team of recognized experts and influencers, initially convened by leaders of 92nd Street Y and supported by a core group of founding partners, originally spearheaded this effort.  Founding partners in 2012 included United Nations Foundation, DonorsChoose.org, Mashable, Blackbaud, charity: water, GlobalGiving, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Kiva, Darden Restaurant Group, Groupon, Unilever and VentureThree Capital.  Leaders in philanthropy, social media, innovative giving, grassroots organizing, marketing and communications are providing counsel and resources to help build this movement.

SAGE Eldercare is a unique community resource that offers a comprehensive array of programs and services for older adults and caregivers, promoting independence and quality of life.  Founded in 1954, SAGE is one of the few non-profit eldercare agencies in the United States, and the oldest in New Jersey, that offers a broad and comprehensive array of services under one roof that assist elderly, often frail, adults to remain independent in their own homes. 

Programs at SAGE Eldercare include: HomeCare; Meals On Wheels; Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center; GPS (Guidance, Planning and Support) Services; InfoCare free information and referral service; Fall Prevention Initiative; Home Repair Service; Grocery Shopping and Errand Service; Bill Paying Service; Holistic Living Services; Alzheimer’s and PREP caregiver support groups; Community Education; and Union County Medicare SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program).  In addition, SAGE has operated a Furniture Restoration Workshop, run by volunteers who specialize in caning and rushing chairs and refinishing furniture, and a Resale Shop for more than 50 years.  Both provide essential funding that supports the organization’s programs and services for older adults in the community. 

SAGE Eldercare serves 7,000 people throughout Union, Essex, Morris and Somerset Counties, as well as across the United States.  For more information, call 908.273.5550 or visit www.sageeldercare.org.
