Support the Center

You are invited to enrich the lives of persons age fifty and over by investing in the future of the Center through your financial contributions.

The Selim Center inspires and sustains passion for lifelong learning in persons age 50 and older. In the next decade, the age 65+ population in Minnesota will explode, increasing by nearly 40%.  The dramatically increasing number of older persons seeking to remain healthy, active and engaged in social communities has placed new and greater demands on the limited resources of the Center.

To remain active and healthy and to continue to contribute to society, a person must learn for their entire lifetime.  Regular intellectual stimulation has been shown to have many positive benefits as we age.  The Selim Center provides hundreds of hours of learning opportunities for older adults each year.
