Donate to the Village

We have grown in the past years to a thriving community making a real difference in enhancing the quality of life for many adults 50+ in the Petaluma/Penngrove area. Donations help provide for the salary of our half-time Manager and quarter-time Administrative Assistant.

They also cover office rental and expenses, liability insurance, office supplies, and the Membership Partners Program, our subsidized membership fund for people living on limited incomes. 

The 220+ Villages nationwide average up to 75% of their revenue from member fees, and the remainder primarily from donations – which is true for us as well.

Please join the growing list of community members whose generous contributions have helped build a thriving and sustainable Village that can be here for all of us as we grow older.
