At COA, not only does more of your donation go directly to needed services, but your donation can be used to obtain federal 'matching funds' which brings up to $5 to the community for every $1 you donate!
Because of our unique position and contracts as stewards of federal dollars, we are able to bring more benefit from your donation than any other agency serving seniors in our community.
COA's Value to the Community
COA touches more than 7,000 individuals annually in Volusia County:
- Last year we served 2,860 clients under our grants. Only 105 of those clients had to be institutionalized which means 96% of those we cared for remained at home.
- It costs $36,000 to $79,000 for a senior to be institutionalized for a year while COA's average care plan costs $1,800 a year.
- If COA did not exist and all clients were institutionalized it would cost the community $115,000,000 every year. Yes, that's Millions!
With the help of our donors, COA adds value to the community.
We have annual giving programs and special events throughout the year that you can support. Making a donation is quick and easy. Click the link below, to make your donation by credit card.
