Double Your Donation!

As a nonprofit organization, Oakwood Creative Care relies on the generous support of our community in order to provide care and hope to our elderly members and their families. Alzheimer’s disease has often been nicknamed the “caregiver’s disease,” a diagnosis that immediately sparks thoughts of hopelessness, with no treatment for the road ahead. In fact, only 45% of physicians provide their patients with a diagnosis for cited reasons that they are ill-prepared to offer any form of support beyond antidepressants and antipsychotics as the disease progresses. The financial toll of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s racks up a bill that quickly places the disease as the costliest of all conditions, with the average cost of institutional facilities being approximately $4000 a month. 

With your in-kind donation, Oakwood Creative Care is able to provide an alternative and revolutionary solution with its dynamic, unique, and innovative approach to offering support, education, and resources to our senior dementia community and their care partners. In aiming to bridge the gaps found within the standards of senior healthcare practices, Oakwood Creative Care has joined with Double the Donation to offer more opportunities to bind our communities together in pursuing a mission dedicated to encouraging independence, treating the mind, body, and spirit, and fostering lifelong learning. 

Double the Donation acts as a search engine, implementing a design intended to help donors discover if their employers will match their donations. To find out if your employer will match your donation made to Oakwood Creative Care, visit https://www.oakwoodcreativecare.org/double-the-donation/, type in your organization’s name under Double Your Donation search bar, then select “Let’s Search”. 

The Double the Donation search engine will then generate information related to your employer’s donation matching programs, how to submit a matching gift request, or provide you with the option to “Add Your Employer” if they are not currently listed. If your employer is not listed in the search engine’s results or they currently do not offer a program to match your donations, we encourage you to reach out to them about adding their company to the Double the Donation database and adopting a donor matching program that will help propel our nonprofit organization towards providing and transforming vital services within the community.

Additionally, if you pay state taxes, your donations to Oakwood Creative Care may be eligible for the Arizona tax credit. As a Qualifying Charitable Organization, tax credit donations made to Oakwood Creative Care will come right back to you at tax time, making now the best time to take advantage of this opportunity to double your donation! Visit our webpage’s Double the Donation search engine now and join together with your employer in a season of revolutionary change!

We're a nonprofit organization based in Mesa, Arizona with three senior day club locations (and a fourth on the way) which serve older adults with Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, and various other physical or cognitive challenges. Life does not end with a diagnosis. Our members continue to learn new skills, enjoy new discoveries, make friends, laugh, and live a joy-filled life. Our team of dementia experts lead support groups, events, classes, and private sessions with caregivers and families, guiding them on the best methods to care for their loved ones while also caring for themselves.
