Corporate Sponsorship & Fundraising Through Special Events
Donations and fundraising through special events is a major priority for the Senior Center. We have made significant progress over the years thanks in large part to the extensive involvement of our membership in fundraising efforts and the engagement of new donors and corporate partners.
Special events are a fun and important part of our fundraising efforts. There is always something, big or small, happening every month – from our May Basket Sale in the spring to the “It’s A Basket Case” week-long gift basket silent auction every December. In addition to being a fun, social way for members and the community to contribute to the financial well-being of the Senior Center, special events bring new members and our generous allies in the business community to the Center.
Members, families, and friends of the Senior Center can be recognized through memorial gifts to Hammond Street Senior Center. A memorial gift is one of the most meaningful ways to express your sympathy to families. Your gift is a remembrance of the past, and at the same time, a promise of a living, growing legacy, benefiting the community for years to come. To establish a memorial gift, please call our Executive Director at (207) 262-5532 with the name you would like the fund to carry and the name and address to whom gifts should be reported. Include in the obituary: "In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to The Hammond Street Senior Center, 2 Hammond Street, Bangor, Maine 04401."
Hammond Street Senior Center serves seniors who reside in more than 45 towns and cities throughout the Greater Bangor and Eastern Maine Region. In the past several years, the Senior Center has made presentations to and supplied municipality-specific information to the City Councilors and Town Selectpersons of the 16 municipalities from which we draw the largest proportion of our members.
