Get Involved with SAIL

SAIL is a truly unique organization in Madison. In fact, it's the only one of its kind! We rely on a large network of people to help fulfill our mission. Read on for the ways you can get involved and help make SAIL the best it can be!

Donate to SAIL

As a non-profit that does not receive government funding, SAIL relies on the generosity of those who trust our commitment to meet the ever-changing needs of a rapidly growing senior population––regardless of their ability to pay for services.

On an annual basis, SAIL's various programs reach approximately 1750 (number) people. In the last year alone, SAIL:  
  • Supported approximately 500 seniors through membership services such as access to wellness and educational programs, technology assistance, transportation support, pre-screened service providers, and much more.
  • Hosted approximately 35 educational events to help seniors learn more about things like Medicare, emergency assistance, home maintenance, technology, and more.
  • Created approximately 200 social events for seniors, including bus trips, lunch outings, book clubs, arts events, and more, forging many friendships along the way.
  • Partnered with numerous community organizations and kept seniors informed about local resources and programs of interest to them.
  • Pre-screened over 100 local vendors to help seniors find the services they need with a guarantee of fairness and quality.
  • Partnered with nearly 100 volunteers to serve seniors in the community with a variety of tasks.
As Dane County's only organization of its kind, SAIL is truly unique in its commitment to encouraging and enabling seniors to live to the fullest. Your support allows the organization to continue its extremely important mission!

We hope you will consider supporting SAIL's work to help people meet the challenges and joys of aging while remaining in their own homes. All contributions to SAIL are tax deductible as we are a program of a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization.

Thank you for supporting SAIL!

Every Gift Makes a Difference!

Become a Service Provider


Do you work for a local business that values outstanding customer service and high standards? Does your business provide a service you believe would be useful and helpful to senior citizens? Do you know of a company that you would recommend to members of SAIL?

Our vetted Service Providers program is one of our most popular member benefits. To inquire about being listed in our provider directory, or to recommend someone, please contact Ann Albert at ann@sailtoday.org.




Become a Professional Services Member


The Professional Service membership is for individuals who offer a professional service or product to the group such as real estate, legal or health services. Professional Services members are not vetted by SAIL but are recommended by SAIL members based on the member’s personal experience and high degree of satisfaction with their services.

Professional Service members receive full SAIL benefits, are invited to SAIL events and have access to the SAIL Service Provider Directory.
They also have access to education based on "best practices" in older adult care and programming. Finally, as believers in the SAIL Mission, they are encouraged to provide support to SAIL via donations, in-kind support, educational programs for members, volunteerism, and discounted service fees.

If your organization would like to join SAIL as a Professional Service Member, contact info@sailtoday.org or call 608-230-4321.
