Visit our Events page to learn about upcoming events that benefit the Center!

The Center raises nearly all of our $50,000+ annual operating budget through private and public donations, fundraisers, grants, and rental revenues. Your gift - in any amount, at any time  - will make a difference and will be put to good use.

In 2003 the City of Ypsilanti eliminated its Recreation Department, but a Friends of the Senior Center Board has been working with the community ever since to help raise money to keep the Center open.

Checks should be made payable to "Ypsilanti Senior Center" and can be mailed or dropped off at the Center, 1015 North Congress, Ypsilanti, MI 48197.

Or if you'd prefer, you may donate online using PayPal.
