About the Congress of California Seniors

Who We Are:

The Congress of California Seniors (CCS), founded in 1977, is a statewide nonprofit advocacy organization and is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) California corporation. Our board of directors is comprised of senior leaders and advocates from among the Congress of California Seniors’ 105 affiliated organizations. The organization is funded through membership dues, contributions from affiliated organizations, individual donations and corporations.

What We Do:

The Congress of California Seniors focuses its primary attention on legislative and consumer issues that impact older adults. The CCS education and advocacy program has proved to be an effective tool in influencing public policy decisions made by the state legislature and other state officials. CCS analyzes and rates all state legislators on their voting record related to key senior issues and publishes the "Legislative Report Card."

In addition, the CCS Education and Research Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, provides educational programs and consumer information for seniors to constituent groups and to the greater senior community throughout the state. Through the efforts of both organizations, the Congress of California Seniors has become a major progressive voice for seniors, their families and their communities. We also sponsor an award winning website, www.seniors.org.

Who We Serve:

As an umbrella organization for more than a hundred affiliated groups, CCS serves a combined membership of several hundred thousand Californians. Its broad-based coalition includes trade union retirees, retired federal/state public employee organizations, senior centers, tenant and homeowner associations, other senior advocacy groups, church groups, and a variety of other agencies and associations. The Congress of California Seniors is a vital "grassroots" organization.
