Marin Villages is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization empowering older adults to remain active, connected and independent in the place they call home.

Through our network of volunteers and local villages we are bringing to life a great idea: vibrant local communities of members and volunteers, enriching each other’s lives, building new connections and making everyday life easier as we age.

Marin Villages Annual Appeal
How else but through the generosity of an organization like the Gruber Family Foundation would Marin Villages have the opportunity to double its fund raising potential?

The Gruber Family Foundation has offered to match all funds, dollar for dollar, raised through this year's annual appeal - up to $10,000! Help us meet (and exceed) this goal so we can continue to provide personal, friendly assistance to older adults and organize the programs and activities to keep us all active, connected and independent!!

Please consider making a donation, by clicking here or mail a check to the office at: Marin Villages
4340 Redwood Hwy, Ste. F-142
San Rafael, CA 94903

Other ways of donating:
Selling appreciated assets (property, stocks, bonds, etc) to make a charitable gift to Marin Villages may enable you to reduce or even eliminate capital gain tax and claim an income tax deduction.

Those age 70.5 years and older can make gifts directly from their IRA, free of federal income tax without increasing adjusted gross income.

Are you Ready?
The devastation from the Camp Fire is only now being discovered, but one thing that many that we know is that you can never be "too" ready for a disaster. Seniors, in particular, seem to be especially hard hit.

There are steps you can take to prepare, so that if a major fire, earthquake or other emergency strikes, you know that you have done all you can to plan for it and the aftermath.

Ready Marin is Marin County's source for information on emergency preparedness, whether you are just starting or an experienced emergency volunteer.

Its mission is to provide guidance, training and resources to keep you and your family safe during an emergency, whether it requires you to evacuate or shelter in place. You will find information and links to resources, checklists, and training opportunities. Let's get prepared.
