ReStart Augusta furnishes the foundation for a good start on the day and a healthy life by providing a new or gently used bed and bedding for children, families, and veterans in the Augusta area.

The Senior Citizens Council of Greater Augusta 

The Senior Citizens Council of Greater Augusta 

Todays’ “Senior Citizens” are redefining that term. Retirement is an option, aging is a state of mind, and becoming old is something that happens when you stop going, growing, learning, and following your dreams! The Senior Citizens Council, which was founded on March 6, 1968, is a chartered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to today’s seniors who are more active and involved than ever before, whatever their age! In fact, these are the seniors that are shaping the future of The Senior Citizens Council and our community by participating in the various programs and services we offer.

About the Women in Philanthropy in the CSRA

Women in Philanthropy is a charitable organization of over 200 women in the Central Savannah River Area of Georgia and South Carolina who are committed to a philanthropic effort focused on the unique needs of women and children within the local communities.

Each year, grants are awarded to non-profit programs and projects that have the potential for high impact, resulting in significant positive change in the lives of women and children in Aiken, Burke, Columbia, Edgefield, McDuffie or Richmond Counties.

As members of WIP, we all recognize that there are tremendous needs in our communities. However, through our work, we have been collectively struck by the enormity of those needs. Of the many requests received in the 2019-20 cycle, Women in Philanthropy awarded $160,475 to fourteen area non-profit organizations.

While we strive to continue this increase annually, the more women who realize the significant work of WIP, the greater our impact will be.

If you’re not already a member, please consider joining us in our effort to better the lives of women, families, and our communities throughout the CSRA. You can also learn more about past grant recipients here.
