GOLDEN AGE FOUNDATION



The Golden Age Foundation (GAF) is a non-profit, charitable, philanthropic organization dedicated to serving the needs of our community's residents.

Among the services provided by GAF are free loans of invalid aids, the lifeline program, income tax reporting assistance, and many more charitable projects.  The GAF has also donated equipment such as large-screen video projects, large-screen TVs, bus stop shelters, and numerous other items to the GRF.

These services are supported solely by tax-exempt donations by groups and individuals. Because the GAF has been certified by the State of California and the United States government, any contribution made to it qualifies for exemption from income taxes in most cases.
