Enriching Lives Every Day- With Your Help!

As a non-profit organization, philanthropy is key to keeping our programs and services growing and thriving while ensuring accessibility to all who want to participate. The Joslyn Center relies on a diverse revenue stream to support its day-to-day operations such as member and program fees and generous donations from local businesses, foundations and individuals. Joslyn also receives vital support from the Cove Communities Service Commission of Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and Rancho Mirage. 

There are many ways to support The Joslyn Center in its mission to serve the seniors of our community who are striving to maintain an independent, thriving lifestyle. Every day, your donations help people find the support, services, and activities that will improve their lives. Every weekday, many seniors get the support they need, and achieve good social, physical, and mental health, and the many benefits provided by our Center.

Your donations help many seniors in your community. Here is just a sampling of the heart-warming stories we hear every day:

Breaking isolation and creating a deep sense of belonging

 “You (Joslyn Center) made my heart happy and made me feel loved and cared for. A lifetime of good memories, thank you”- Joslyn Member Dolores Pontrelli

Nourishing those in need with healthy, nutritious foods

“I have been blessed this year to have Meals on Wheels in my life. As I age I find many of the things I was able to do, I no longer do. Your program has helped me stay in my own home with dignity.” Meals on Wheels recipient

Fostering a sense of well-being of the mind, body and spirit

“The Joslyn Center has been a lifesaver. After my husband died I reluctantly decided to venture out for new friends and experiences. I was richly rewarded at Joslyn.”- 100 year old Joslyn Member, Alison Hansen
