Aging by the Numbers
An estimated 21% of all U.S. households are providing care for an adult family member. Increasingly, employers see the toll that takes on their own employees’ health and productivity.

Workers caring for an older relative are more likely to report health problems like depression, diabetes, hypertension or heart disease—costing employers $13.4 billion annually. — MetLife Study

Online GIVING—Important Information
Donations may be of any amount although $10 is the suggested minimum online gift. When you click on Donate, you will be taken to the PayPal website where you can choose to use its service (requiring a PayPal account) or to donate by credit card (no PayPal account needed). Either way, your tax-deductible donation will go to North Star Village through our 501c3 nonprofit hub, Villages NW.
Please be aware that PayPal and credit card companies charge a small administrative fee (2.5-3%) for each transaction which will decrease the net donation North Star Village receives. So, if you want more of your donation to go to North Star Village, you will probably want to donate by check, rather than give online.
When you donate, you will receive a formal thank you letter acknowledging your tax-deductible donation to North Star Village through Villages NW.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Patt at firstname.lastname@example.org or Villages NW at info@VillagesNW.org. Top
