Leave Your Legacy with AgingNext

Together we can do more.

Planned giving provides a great opportunity for individuals who want to leave a lasting impact through long-term charitable contributions.

We make it easy with Mary’s Legacy, a planned giving initiative honoring AgingNext’s noble founder Mary Sandoe.

Be a Part of Mary’s Legacy

We can’t always rely on government funding or grants, so your support means everything. Your planned gift will ensure your legacy as a member of the AgingNext family and improve the quality of life for older adults in our community.

What is Planned Giving?

Small effort. Big impact.

Legacy giving is a charitable gift made through a will, trust, estate plan or other legal structure that helps support a meaningful cause you really care about.

Your gift can have immediate impact by establishing a living legacy, or it can be transferred to AgingNext when you’re gone.

Planned giving changes lives.

We make it easy with a seamless process for establishing your charitable gift.

Meet Mary / AgingNext Founder
In 1975, Mary Sandoe found herself frustrated with the inability to find transportation for her older friend, who despite severe disabilities, was very active in the community doing much-needed volunteer work.

She spearheaded a needs assessment that included four local retirement communities, Claremont Manor, Hillcrest, Pilgrim Place and Mt. San Antonio Gardens, as well as the Claremont Graduate University.

These organizations worked together to identify those services that were most needed by seniors living independently in the area. As a result, transportation was identified as the most needed, and least available, service. In 1976, under Mary’s leadership, Baldy View Community Services for the Aged responded to the transportation dilemma by starting Get About using two borrowed vans from the Claremont Red Cross.

From the beginning as Baldy View Community Services for the Aged, and now as AgingNext, our nonprofit has served as convener, information resource and collaborator on senior issues in parts of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. We are there when our clients and their families need us most…when transportation is required, when a caregiver is needed, when socialization is imperative to feeling connected and when guidance and a friendly smile make all the difference.

And her story continues…

Your consideration of a gift will help to ensure your legacy as a member of the AgingNext family and will improve the quality of life for our clients and their families. Depending on your stage in life, Mary’s Legacy can help you explore your financial options.

We invite you to be a part of Mary’s Legacy and make an impact on the lives of older adults, now and well into the future.

Remember, the best gift is the one you give to someone else.

Live your best life at every age...

2020 has changed many things… but not Bill and Pat!

We have all heard the phrase that in life, “change is the only constant”. This has certainly been true the last few months. During these unprecedented times, it is nice to know that the cornerstones of life remain the same.

Villages and Self Reliance

Villages thrive in the belief that independence is made possible through interdependence. Often times Village Membership extends the period of aging-at-home and data suggests Village members feel more socially connected and feel less isolated.
