Carly Accepts City Council DonationDonate to Us!

“All Mom did was sit in front of the TV until the center  became a part of her life. Now she is involved, exercises, volunteers and has new friends” - an appreciative daughter

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.

There are several ways you can support our mission:

Donate Goods Donate Online


Regardless of how you contribute, we are grateful for your support. Thanks to your donations, in 2010, the Ballard NW Senior Center was able to provide more than 4,000 seniors from Ballard, Magnolia, and Queen Anne with services. Look through the web site, stop by, or give us a call and you will start to get the picture of center life and see why this senior center is a wonderful place, whether you are 50 or 100.

“A few years ago my husband passed away unexpectedly. I didn’t have any family in the area and I was alone and depressed. I went to the Ballard Senior Center and it was such an uplifting experience to go there to have a meal and to talk to someone. I am a baby boomer senior and like to do things for myself, but the Ballard Senior Center was such a huge help for me—and in a way, a lifesaver. " - grateful wife


The Ballard Northwest Senior Center does so much for so many and is a one stop shop for those 50 and above and their families. Think of yourself, mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend or neighbor and what you or they may enjoy, want or need now or in the future. This is the place in the Ballard, Magnolia, Crown Hill and surrounding areas where it all happens. A friendly lunch spot, a workout center, a movie with friends, a Wednesday night dinner, a health and wellness center, take a class, talk to a lawyer or financial planner or make some jewelry and on it goes.

“Dad wasn’t eating well and seemed to have little interest after our Mom passed. Someone suggested he go to the center. Now, he has lunch friends, takes a class or two, and might exercise on occasion. What a difference! He is interested again in life” - A grateful son

It takes a lot of resources to run a center and we are grateful for all the donations from center members, friends and the community. We are a 501c3 agency and your contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. (Check with your tax advisor). When goods are donated, we have a donation form for tax purposes. Thank you for your help and support.

Donation forms are available at the upstairs reception desk, and a valuation guide is available. We are a non-for-profit and your contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. (Check with your tax advisor).

Donate to the $pring for Seniors Auction

Our 21st annual Dinner and Auction will be here before you know it. It is time to donate an item and make up your tables. Our goal is to raise $70,000 for the programs and services of the center. Think about what you, your family, friends, business associates, favorite merchant or restaurant can donate. If you are unable to donate an actual item, cash is a great option so the committee can buy needed things to go in baskets or to complete another item. Thank you, this is our largest fundraiser and if we all work together we can make it the most successful event.

Donate New Items/Gift Certificates

$pring for $eniors Auction

This is the main fundraiser for the Center, so all donations are vital and important, and several opportunities are available. Donate new items and gift certificates to your favorite places and activities for our Silent and Live Auctions. Item pickup is available. Click here for the donation procurement form.  Call Kristina at 206-297-0403 or email her at KristinaW@SeniorServices.org for more information.  

Sponsor the Event
Through the support of businesses and individuals who value the work that the Ballard NW Senior Center does the $pring for $eniors Auction is possible. I hope you will help to underwrite this event. Sponsorship opportunities and form can be printed from here. Call Kristina at 206-297-0403 or email her at KristinaW@SeniorServices.org for more information.

Donate Books

The Nifty Thrifty Book Store
Visit the growing Bookstore, for your choice of paperbacks, hardbacks, magazines, cassettes, DVDs, and records. Open Monday thru Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm, the Bookstore is located next to the Dining Hall & Cafe. People enjoy finding a great book to read. In our new bookstore people are welcome to read and relax in our comfortable couches, and books can be bought to take home. Our Bookstore is run by the wonderful Book Movers Group, and is supplied by fantastic donations from readers like you. Donate your previously read books, and know that they will be read and enjoyed.

Donate Items

Rummage Sales
Remember your good rummage is another’s treasure. When doing your after holiday or spring cleaning, put aside several bags of your “don’t need” items for the sale. We accept items in very good condition, but not electronics or large items due to lack of space. If you wonder if your item is acceptable, just ask us. Call Kristina at 206-297-0403 for more information. We appreciate your support.

Donate Holiday Items

Holiday Bazaar

Our spectacular Bazaar is in November. Last year many donations of expertly crafted items, such as handmade blankets, aprons, wall hangings and dolls were donated and delighted people who came to shop. Delicious baked goods were made the day of the Bazaar, and the lunch provided in the café was wonderful. People looked through the fantastic holiday items people had donated to the center and bought many of them. This is an important event as it is one of the last fundraisers the Center does each year.


Please let us know if you plan to bring “goodies” for us to sell or would like to join a group to come bake items ahead of time for the Holiday Bazaar. Gifts, hand crafted items, Holiday decorations (new & used), and baked goods are welcome. People interested in using our Craft Room to work on projects are welcome. Call Kristina at 206-297-0403 for more information.
