    First, click in the box marked “Donation Amount” and type in how much you want to donate. Then click one of the buttons directly below that to choose if your donation will be one-time or recurring (if you select the recurring option, click the drop-down menu next to it and select how often the donation will be made). Then, click one of the buttons below these to select what contact information you want to give to O.A.T.S., if any. Finally, click Donate Now when you’ve made all your choices.

  3. On the next screen, click Check Out.

  4. You will need to enter your billing information on the next screen. There’s a lot to do here, so we’ll split it into two parts. The first part is your contact information. 


    Click in each of the boxes marked with an asterisk (*) in the screenshot above and type in or select your:

    – first name
    – last name
    – street address
    – city of residence
    – territory of residence
    – mailing code
    – phone number
    – email address

    You can also select your country of residence, and add your company name and your title at that company, if you wish.

  5. The second part is your credit card information. Click in the boxes highlighted in the screenshot below and type in or select:

    – your credit card type
    – your credit card number
    – the month and year your credit card expires
    – your credit card’s security code

    After filling in your billing details, click one of the buttons below them to decide whether you want to pay the donation’s processing fee or not, or to add an additional donation to New York Charities. When you’re all set, click Submit. Doesn’t it feel good to give back?

     

Planned Money Donations or Donations-in-Kind

If you want to do something really special, you can make a donation to Senior Planet a part of your retirement package or last will and testament. Your lasting legacy will be helping your fellow older adults learn to adapt to the new digital age! How cool is that?

You can also donate computer programs or computer hardware (like monitors and keywords) to Senior Planet, or volunteer to help them fix their equipment. Technology these days breaks down more often than a lot of people like, so it’s always a plus for Senior Planet to have backups or people on hand who can get things up and running again!

For more information about these kinds of donations, call Older Adults Technology Services (O.A.T.S.), Senior Planet’s parent organization, at 718-360-1707, or email them at “info@oats.org”.

How to Leave Email Feedback

  1. Go to www.seniorplanet.org in your web browser and click on Feedback in the menu across the bottom of the screen.

    Next, click in the box labelled “Email” and type in your email address.

    Next, click in the box labelled “Your Feedback” and type in what you want to say about Senior Planet, either what they could do to improve or just how much help they’ve been.
