A Brief History of the Anchorage Senior Center

The Center is celebrating its 30th Anniversary of service in the Anchorage Bowl area in 2013. It opened a new facility in 1983 and added a new wing in 2002 to accommodate the growth in programs as well as the growth of people over 55 years of age in our community. As of 2013, there are 2,500 members from throughout the Anchorage area. The beautiful brick building is centrally located between Downtown Anchorage and Mid-town at 1300 East 19th Avenue. It is situated on five acres of land with ample parking plus People Mover bus service and door-to-door Anchor-Rides transportation. The Center and the surrounding grounds are owned by the Municipality of Anchorage. The Center is accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers and the National Council on Aging. There are only 188 Senior Centers in the nation that have achieved this high standard of accreditation.

Endowment, Who Are We

The Anchorage-Age Senior Center Endowment Fund was established to ensure the future of the Anchorage Senior Activity Center with the investment of planned and financial gifts in a Trust Fund with the interest in supporting the Center’s programs and services.

The Endowment Trustees, who are community volunteers, with expertise in financial management and investments as well as estate planning, established a Legacy Society to seek major financial gifts and bequests plus recognize donors for their generosity.

As of December 31, 2017 the Endowment Fund is approximately $4,450,000.

The Fund gladly accepts memorials and honorary gifts, lifetime financial gifts of $1,000 or more, bequests, life insurance beneficiary designations, Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable donations and real estate according to gift acceptance policies.
