One of the finest senior centers you'll ever come across. Great library, good food and lots of programs."

Jenks Center Sponsors

The Jenks Center relies on many forms of support throughout the year that includes sponsorships, donations and volunteers. These generous contributions play a vital role in sustaining the many educational, social support and recreational programs offered by the Jenks. Our success as a community asset would not be possible without the following supporters. 

Grant Providers


A Ten-Year Cummings Foundation Grant


The Winchester Seniors Association (WSA) is delighted to announce that we were one of only forty organizations awarded a ten-year grant from the Cummings Foundation.  The grant allows the WSA to continue offering evening and weekend programs, which is especially important for our working seniors. 


We ask all patrons to:

  • Thank the Cummings Foundation for their generous support!

  • Log in to see what’s happening on Tuesday evening at the Jenks.

  • Invite your friends to join you.

  • Let us know if there are speakers or topics that you would like to hear about.

  • And spread the word to organizations that could benefit from use of the Jenks Center.


Please send any suggestions to:  Maria Rutnam, WSA Program Manager
