Terms of Service: Please read below before you submit your question

The ElderWisdomCircle™ responds as quickly as possible to each and every request, but we are PROHIBITED from offering a few types of replies:

  • ANY type of question that requires medical, tax, legal, or investment opinion or advice of any nature is against our non-profit charter and by-laws and cannot be answered.
  • Our Elders are primarily based in the United States; we will do our best to appropriately answer letters that require a comprehensive understanding of cultural norms, career or educational structures outside of the US.
  • Questions submitted with insufficient information or detail to allow a proper reply cannot be answered.
  • Obscure questions that require specialized knowledge not likely held by the general American population cannot be answered.
  • Requests to assist with homework, projects, business plans or similar tasks cannot be answered


Suggested Format for Submissions

How you share your question and concerns is entirely up to you, but it's easier for Elders to REALLY meet your needs if you provide the essential details.

1. What's your concern?
2. Give us some details.
3. How can we help you?

All users have the option at submission to make their letters and accompanying replies private; private letters will never be viewable by the public in any form. If you choose to make your letter public, it will be searchable in our public archives and may appear as a featured letter on our site or in our weekly syndicated column.
