One of the potential benefits of becoming a Community Partner is the ability to display your marketing materials at our Centers, and to interact with our members during events. It’s a great way to get your name in front of your target market and meet them face-to-face for a more individualized opportunity.

Value and Impact

If your company is looking for a way to reach older adults in Southwest Florida, consider sponsoring a program or an event at the Friendship Centers, aligning your brand with a trusted leader in the aging field.

Community partnership is a way to maximize your advertising or marketing budget by targeting not only thousands of baby boomers and senior citizens, but their family members and the Friendship Centers’ many donors and volunteers. Your Community Partnership could help provide a nourishing meal, access to lifesaving health care and support for caregivers and their loved ones, or help support our activity centers, where older adults find relief from loneliness and begin to thrive, not just survive. You decide where you want your dollars to go.

The Friendship Centers has earned the trust and respect of thousands of older adults in Southwest Florida over the past four decades. As a result, a corporate partnership reflects your own company’s credibility and integrity in the community. It is a way to express your company’s commitment as a responsible and compassionate influence in the community by supporting a very worthy cause.

Whether you choose a Program or Event Partnership, we offer a variety of Community Partner benefits designed to provide you with an effective vehicle to maximize your company’s marketing budget. Contact us today for more details.
