125 LIVE remains focused on offering a diverse range of services with the singular focus of empowering older adults to live their lives on their own terms with independence, dignity, and a sense of fulfillment. As the season of giving is upon us, we ask that you remember 125 LIVE in your gift giving. Many older adults in our community desperately need our help. We should all be able to enjoy a quality of life at all ages, make informed decisions, and have access to programs to assist us through life’s transitions. Will you please give today and help us reach our holiday appeal fundraising goal of $25,000?

125 LIVE relies on contributions from the community to continue to offer our programs and resources for all seniors in our community. Your generous donation is tax-deductable, and you will receive a confirmation of your donation.
