Alliance on Aging

Mission

The Alliance on Aging's mission is to provide services and resources to address the challenges and opportunities of aging. We promote independence, dignity, and well-being for the older adults of Monterey County

The Big Idea

Many elderly people in Monterey County do not have transportation assistance with access to services, like rides to get to legal, medical, and other appointments that can be difficult for them. Alliance on Aging envisions a one-stop shop, where seniors (ages 60-plus) can get assistance from seven nonprofits to support various resource needs. Called The Hub, this expansion of the Alliance’s Salinas office will open in 2022 and also include social and wellness opportunities for seniors. They will be able to get coffee at a cafe and socialize with friends, take part in classes and attend events. The Hub is an expansion of Alliance on Aging’s long standing commitment to the seniors of Monterey County, helping them utilize resources and promote their well-being.

My husband and I have lived in America for 45 years. The majority of elderly people are not familiar with computer. We are one of those. Very recently, we got stuck with our 2020 tax returns. IRS sent us a demanding letter, saying that we had to pay more than $1,800 in two weeks. We tried to reach the IRS. We called them millions of times but could not get through. We did not want to pay any amount without knowing why. We started looking for help. Finally, we reached Alliance on Aging. The tax counselor patiently guided us on how to reach IRS and to resolve our problem. In less than a week, we reached an IRS staff who surprisingly fixed our problem in 20 minutes. We were relieved and freed from all kind of headaches. Many thanks to Alliance. We are sharing our experience with our friends.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
