At Council on Aging for Henderson County, we depend on volunteer effort and donations from the community in order to provide the services that we offer.

Donations need not be monetary. We are happy to accept gently used items at either of our thrift store locations, and we’re happy to accept donations of your time should you wish to volunteer.

Other Ways to Give

Providing long-term, impactful donations through these planned giving approaches is also a wonderful way to support Henderson County Council on Aging.


Please consider naming the Henderson County Council on Aging as a beneficiary in a last will and testament, trust, or as a designated beneficiary. 100% of such designated funds would be used toward our mission with no income tax liability to you. In addition, bequests via beneficiary designations typically avoid the probate process and help maximize the charitable impact of the donation.

Donations from your IRA

Starting around 71 years of age, those with IRAs or 401(k)s must take a required minimum distribution (RMD) each year. Typically, income taxes would be due on the RMD. However, by directing an RMD to the Henderson County Council on Aging, you can satisfy the RMD requirement while also saving income taxes.

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds are “charitable savings accounts” that provide immediate tax deductions regardless of when distributions are made. These funds are also an excellent way to remain involved in Henderson County Council on Aging to help support specific programs or organizational goals.

For these planned giving approaches and other charitable gift vehicles, please consult with your estate planning attorney, tax adviser, or financial adviser.
