Supporting our Mission
“I love helping people. This is such a happy place. Without it, I would be very lonely.” – A 94 year-old volunteer at the Sarasota Friendship Center
An organization like the Friendship Centers simply cannot exist without the support of the community we serve. Financial support can take many forms: annual fund giving, memorial and tribute donations, charitable giving options, corporate sponsorship, planned giving, estate planning, endowments, naming opportunities and attendance at fundraising events. Donations from individuals and businesses represent over 10 percent of our annual revenue stream.
The gift of time is also highly valued. Our volunteers typically provide over 60,000 hours of service with an in-kind value of nearly $3.5 million every year. Volunteering is one of the keys to healthy aging. And it truly makes a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
