It takes a community

to keep ours thriving.

Chicago Methodist Senior Services is able to provide our services and residences to the community in large part thanks to donations from our generous supporters. Your gift helps to make our work possible.

Together, we can help Chicago’s older adults to live and feel well. Make a tax-deductible donation today. Thank you for your support!

Individual Retirement Accounts

Currently law permits those who are 70½ years of age and older to make a gift of up to $100,000 from a Traditional IRA directly to a qualified charity. This provides tax benefits for both you and the charity. For more details, please consult your financial advisor.


If you choose to transfer appreciated marketable stocks or mutual fund shares directly to us, there may be tax advantages to you. If the securities have decreased in value since you acquired them, it may be more beneficial for you to sell them, report the capital loss deduction and donate the proceeds.

Planned Giving

Consider remembering Chicago Methodist Senior Services in your will. By including a donation in your will or trust, you can help us continue to provide supportive services for future generations.

Matching Gifts

Many employers have Matching Gifts Programs and will match your tax-deductible contribution. Check with your Human Resources Department for information on enrolling your company in the Matching Gift Program.
