Valente Foundation gift funds senior services

From page A4 | November 08, 2012 |

The George and Lena Valente Foundation has donated $100,000 to the Davis Senior Center to assist with the delivery of programs and services to older adults in the community. The majority of the gift ($85,000) is being set aside in the new Senior Services Endowment Fund that was established in July by the Davis City Council, in conjunction with the Yolo Community Foundation and its affiliate, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.

The remaining $15,000 is being used to establish a secondary fund, the Davis Senior Services Improvement Fund, also in conjunction with both the Yolo and Sacramento Region community foundations. This fund is designed to provide long-term financial support for future capital improvements, maintenance and/or special projects at the Davis Senior Center and in support of its varied programs and services.

The George and Lena Valente Foundation gave its first donation in support of the Senior Center in 2000, and was instrumental in assisting the city and the Senior Citizens of Davis Inc. with the capital fundraising campaign for the Phase III expansion to the Senior Center in 2001.

“To date, the foundation has contributed just short of $1 million in programming and capital support, and the city of Davis is truly appreciative of their continuing generosity throughout the years,” a news release said. “It is because of this generous support by the Valente Foundation and other individuals that the Davis Senior Center continues to touch so many lives of older adults and their family members in such a positive manner.”

For more information on how to contribute to the Davis Senior Services Funds, call the Senior Center at 530-757-5696 or the Yolo Community Foundation at 530-312-0593, or visit www.yolocf.org.
