Help support Georgia’s children and elders

January 27, 2015

Help an older Georgian get a meal or a ride, or support a range of other causes by making a $1 or more donation to the Georgia Fund for Children and Elderly (GFCAE) this upcoming tax season.


Donating takes a few seconds, and even a $1 contribution goes a long way when combined with the gifts of other taxpayers. Taxpayers can donate by following these five steps:


1. Locate the Georgia Fund for Children and Elderly listed on State Income Tax Form 500 or 500 EZ.
2. Pick an amount to donate.  (It must be one dollar or more.)
3. Find the line next to the fund that you have chosen.
4. Subtract your chosen amount from your refund or add it to your payment.
5. The donations are tax deductible on the following year’s return.


Participating is simple. Just check Georgia Fund for Children and Elderly, pick an amount, and make it count. Being a great neighbor to fellow Georgians has never been easier.


About the GFCAE
The Georgia Fund for Children and Elderly (GFCAE) is divided equally between the Georgia Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services and the Georgia Department of Public Health.  The aging funds, distributed among Georgia’s 12 Area Agencies on Aging, are used to give more people access to home-delivered meals and senior transportation.  Funds earmarked for youth support preschool children with special needs.


The Division of Aging Services works in collaboration with Georgia’s 12 Area Agencies on Aging to serve older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers.  For more information, visit www.aging.ga.gov or call 866-552-4464.
