Evergreen Society

The Board of Directors of Rufty-Holmes Senior Center has established the Evergreen Society to recognize and honor those individuals who have chosen to include Rufty-Holmes Senior Center in their wills and estate plans, and/or have made significant gifts to benefit the Center during their lifetimes.

Legacy gifts have enabled the Center to build an extra parking lot, establish an operating fund reserve, and complete needed capital and building projects.

Members of the Society are asked to indicate the level of recognition they feel comfortable with, and can be recognized by name or as “a Friend of Rufty-Holmes Senior Center”.
