In addition to the Borough of Madison, the Madison Senior Center receives funding from the Friends of the Madison Senior Center, a non-profit 501(C)3 organization.  The group provides supplemental programming and financial support as well as special event volunteers.  Donations are tax-deductible. Board meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 9:30am.

The Senior Center Advisory Committee facilitates communication between seniors and the Mayor and Council, identifies needs relevant to the senior population and recommends programs and strategies to implement solutions. The committee meets on the second Thursday of the month at 2:00pm.
