Serving our Community
Throughout the years, SaddleBrooke continues to be highly valued for its quality of life. Residents choose to live here for the many activities offered in a healthy, safe and friendly environment. At some point though, as time passes, physical limitations make it more difficult to maintain that lifestyle.
Senior Village, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to providing simple, non-medical services to residents of SaddleBrooke to help them live independently and to serve as a resource when they decide to transition from our community.
Legacy gifts, also known as planned giving, enable the donor to make a lasting impact on the recipients of that generosity. For a list of current patrons click Patrons.
Donations are needed to further the mission of Senior Village at SaddleBrooke to assist residents to stay in their home as long as possible. There are many ways to donate: credit cards through PayPal, checks mailed to PO Box 8584, Tucson, AZ 85738, Arizona Tax Credits, and Amazon Smile. Legacy or planned giving is another way to donate and includes bequests of life insurance, stocks & bonds, real estate, cars, boats, etc. Credit card donations go through PayPal, at the bottom of the page, or this link HERE, either of which will take you to the Patron Information form.
