There Is No Greater Gift Than Friendship
The power of one individual to impact our world multiplies by every life that is touched. When we step forward to give our time, talent and resources to help others, we set in motion a continuum of compassion that extends beyond ourselves, to our neighbors, to our community and to our world
Every day people's lives change because of Senior Friendship Centers. We reach out to people in need, helping them find the special connection called Friendship. For thousands of people throughout Southwest Florida, the Centers are a lifeline for vital services: health and dental care, nutritious meals, social services, adult day services, and caregiver support. Sooner or later, there comes a time when the circle of Friendship inspires a desire to give back.
As a private, nonprofit organization, Senior Friendship Centers' facilities, programs and services are built and made possible with the support of individual gifts and donations. While we receive some governmental funding, we simply would not be able to do what we do without your support. We recognize each gift is as personal and individual as the donor making it. For information on how your gift makes a difference, contact the Office of Charitable Giving at 941.556.3253.
Remembering SFC's Founder, Brother William Geenen,CSC
In 1973 Brother William Geenen's vision of a network of services to help older adults live with dignity and respect formed the foundation for Senior Friendship Centers. Nearly four decades that dream is a reality thanks to the support of caring people working together to make make Senior Friendship Centers a reality. His legacy lives on through the Brother William Geenen Fund of the Senior Friendship Centers Foundation.
Sarasota Herald Tribune journalist Kathy Silverberg

Time. Talent. Treasure.
Volunteers Share Time & Talent
Often, giving back begins with volunteering. It can mean sharing your talent -- teaching a class, volunteering at our clinics, delivering meals to the homebound, or any of hundreds of opportunities in the communities we serve. And it often leads to a financial gift to ensure programs and services that mean so much to your life, or the life of someone you love, will continue. [ Volunteer ]
Donors Share Treasure
Gifts to Senior Friendship Centers are as diverse as the people we serve. They come from the hearts of individuals and families who are touched by our programs and those who discover this simple truth: in helping others, we help ourselves.
