Join the Denver Senior Coalitions for 2018
New for 2018, Denver Senior Coalitions is structuring the annual membership dues by “organization”. This means that for whichever option you sign up for (1 Chapter, 2 Chapters or 3 Chapters + the 4th), you can have as many people from your organization added to the Chapter membership list as you want. For example join one chapter for $75.00 and as many people from you organization can attend that chapter, join 2 chapters for $150.00 and as many people from you organization can attend those two chapters and so on.

A Report on the 2017 JCAF Funds Distribution
Dear Denver Senior Coalition Members,
Below are the responses and summaries from all 8-member companies that received JCAF funds in December 2017. Their summaries share with us where they distributed their funds. I want to personally thank all the 2017 board members who made the decision to switch to the new JCAF distribution format, for a job well done. I pulled some numbers to share so you can compare:
The JCAF contributed to the following number of seniors in the three years prior to 2017:
- In 2016 – the JCAF helped 93 seniors; in 2015 – 78 seniors and in 2014 – 95 seniors; for the three-year period prior to 2017, we provided assistance to a total of 266 seniors for an average of 89 seniors a year.
- In 2017, with the new approach to our JCAF funds, our nonprofit members assisted at least 652 seniors.
This is just simply amazing! And an additional thank you to all the Denver Senior Coalition members, without their support for this organization this outreach would not be possible.
Regards, Bill Hohs – DSC Executive Board Chairperson
