You know what doesn’t change when you retire? Your skills. Whether you were a judge or CEO, teacher or musician, your talents, drives and desires come with you. That’s why our Social Accountability program is all about taking those skills and putting them to work – for others. Ready to #InspireNotRetire? Join the Conversation Partner Project and share stories with immigrant peers while helping them learn English. Or stretch your legs – and your dollars – with a walkathon. From donating socks to skills, time to tales, however you give will give back to you more than you could ever imagine. Inspiring, right?
Members gave over 7,000

Talk: The Conversation Partner Project.
The Conversation Partner Project is exactly what it sounds like: talking. Our members meet with a community of senior immigrants once a week, sharing stories as a way to help them learn English. They talk, share food and laugh, which is great in any language.
Walk: The Northwest Pilot Project Walk-a-thon.
Stretch your legs – and your dollars – with this yearly walkathon for the Northwest Pilot Project. Whether you’re a fast walker or someone who likes to saunter, every little bit counts. And since we match funds, your effort is doubled, resulting in thousands of dollars donated to fellow seniors in need.
Serve: The Board of Directors.
Did you work at a non-profit in your former work life? Were you an attorney, CPA, or have business skills that are ready to be revived? Run for a seat on the board of directors for Terwilliger Plaza or the Terwilliger Plaza Foundation. Serving on the board is a great way to represent your neighbors and help make decisions that impact the entire community.
We love giving back.
