@mi4090   The AARP foundation is the only option for donating points at this time.

Hey its a simple link

Just went to site did 4 screenshots of tabs on site which shows some breakdown of things but as with any charity you can always request a detailed financial report from them: Screenshot_20190606-163052_Samsung Internet.jpgInfo contact AARP Foundation

Hello Ginger,

 

I haven't looked at the link yet, but is it showing who the foundation supports with funds?  Are they donations or grants applied for by 501(c)3 senior foundations that were awarded?

 

Is the link for a list of additional 501(c)3's that help seniors, where points can be donated also?  Since you have researched this link, please let me know a little more about it.  Sorry but my time is somewhat limited.  I will get around to researching it soonSmiley Happy

 

I appreciate your knowledge, assistance and help.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

@mi4090

Morning Marylin 

If your interested you can go to Charity Navigator 

https://www.charitynavigator.org/

Then put in AARP then you can click all the tabs to see amounts of monies and grants which its a huge amount but also they use it 

Tabs show How Funds spent, Amount Leaders are paid & lots more 

AARP FOUNDATION has good rating and if recall correctly 82% of every $ goes to services they provide 

Check it out if you haven't

Good Morning Ladies,

 

I think the foundation does wonderful things for seniors and deserves Kudos!! 

 

Are there other 501(c)3 charities that help seniors that you can donate some points to?  This would spread the help around, and enable them to provide more assistance in their communities?  Upon local 501(c)3 obtaining enough donated points they can cash them in to receive a grant amount to continue the work they do for seniors on a local level.Smiley Wink

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

DONATE & FEEL GREAT – Use Your Reward Points For a Good Cause

Right now, seniors across the country -- including in your state and community -- are struggling to get through the day as they face issues with hunger, housing, income, and isolation. You can help them.  Your points donation will connect vulnerable older adults with the assistance they need to take on these challenges from foreclosure prevention counseling to food assistance and more.

 

 

Donate your points to:

Hey Everyone 

I've considered posting a new topic about Donation of Points to AARP Foundation because several members have been discussing this on the "Don't forget Sweeps" Topic. I decided to do some searches for past posts b4 creating a new topic this one I've quoted is from 2017 So I feel it is time to bring it back to Top of Topics vs A new Topic.

This is a very great and easy way for all members to donate $10 each month using 1000 points to AARP Foundation which is AARP's Charity that supports Seniors in many ways providing meals, Free Tax Preparation, & much more with your donations and all the Volunteers help. Which AARP & Foundation sites provides lots of information about all ways we can Help & Volunteer.  Also your donation is Tax Deductible. 

If you decide to become a donor through funds you'll then recieve the "to Serve" Publication 4 times a year which provides updates about what Foundation is doing and New ideas and recognition of all the Volunteers that make all these programs possible. 

You can do a search to read more.

Several members have questions about where funds go and such. Please feel free to post your questions here & with this being Helper Teri's post hopefully she can provide the needed answers. 

Thanks to all who help and for all you do in making this community work and be such a blessing to us all. 

Gratefully

Ginger  :  )
