The Senior Center Expansion Committee is pleased to announce that donors who make a contribution of $100 or more to the Senior Center Expansion Project will be recognized with a commemorative brick paver in a new outdoor patio at the Senior Center. Each 4” x 8” laser engraved brick will feature up to three lines of text and may include artwork or logos for an additional charge. A special section of the patio will be reserved for bricks in memory of loved ones.

Donors who have already made a donation of $100 or more can simply fill out a form with the text to be engraved on their brick. Those who have made cumulative contributions totaling $500 or more will also be featured on the donor recognition wall at the following levels of support: Copper ($500 to $999), Bronze ($1,000 to $2,499), Silver ($2,500 to $4,999), Sterling ($5,000 to $9,999), Gold ($10,000 to $24,999), and Platinum ($25,000 and Greater). One hundred percent of your donation will go to the expansion.

Fort Collins Senior Center and the Senior Center Expansion Committee
The nationally recognized Fort Collins Senior Center opened in 1995 and has been operating at capacity since opening day. With Larimer County's 65+ population projected to grow by more than 140% over the next 20 years, Fort Collins voters in 2005 approved a $5.1 tax increase to expand the Senior Center. The expansion will create an additional 17,000 sq. ft. adding multi-purpose rooms, a cardio-fitness room, a dance and exercise studio, additional storage space, a larger lobby and social cafe, a wellness center, new administration space, and more parking.

The Senior Center Expansion Committee, a citizen-led 501(c)(3) non-profit, was formed to raise awareness about the need for the expansion and the additional funds needed to support the project. For more information, visit SeniorCenterExpansion.org.
