Donate to the Rush Center for Excellence in Aging

At the Rush Center for Excellence in Aging (CEA), we believe that the best way to provide quality care to older adults, families and communities is by ensuring that care is informed by evidence and the priorities and experiences of patients and their families. Through research, patient care, education, community outreach and advocacy, the Center works to improve the health care system’s ability to improve the health and well-being of older adults and their families as well as the community at large.

Making a Difference With Your Donation

Although academic grants fund some of programming, research, advocacy and outreach, we still rely on donations and gifts from grateful patients, their family members and others to help us help others age well. Your contribution plays an essential role in keeping us going. In giving, you will make a difference in the lives of countless people, including patients and their families, researchers and students, who will benefit greatly from your generosity.

Please consider supporting our efforts by making a gift donation.

Ways to Donate

You can make a donation with a single gift, or consider making your annual contribution by dividing it into convenient monthly payments. By taking advantage of this opportunity you are helping us put your support to work year-round.

The easiest way to make a donation is to use Rush’s secure website to make a gift online—it saves time and eliminates mailing costs. Learn how to designate your gift specifically to the Rush Center for Excellence in Aging.

Increase the value of your gift by having it matched. Many employers match employee gifts to Rush. This program may exist for both current and retired employees. Contact your human resources office to find out if your employer has a matching gift program.
