Every gift you give improves the life of older adults and their families.

There are many ways you can support the work of RSS

Legacy Donations

Legacy gifts become part of a special endowment fund to generate additional income towards providing services and ensures our future stability. Gifts to RSS by Will are simple to make, are not subject to New York or Federal estate tax and all gifts are deeply appreciated and will receive special recognition. Please call the office at (718) 884-5900 to discuss such a gift, as well as planning with your attorney.

Honor Denotions of Celebration and Rememberance

Contributions can be made to recognize a special occasion (speedy recovery, thank you, in memory, happy birthday or anniversary, etc.) or to honor a friend or love one’s accomplishment (graduation, wedding, birth of a child or grandchild, etc.). RSS will inform the designated family of your thoughtfulness and generosity and publish your donation in the monthly newsletter.

In addition, donations can be made for a commemorative plaque on our Tree of Life which is prominently displayed in our Center.
