Our Supporters

Senior Center members and other generous individuals and organizations that become Friends of The Center are our heroes. Their generous support – whether through annual contributions, deferred gift commitments or other forms of philanthropy – provides an increasingly vital portion of The Center’s revenue stream.

From purchasing new equipment and hosting nationally known speakers, to providing support for our low-income scholarship fund, Friends of The Center help us enhance our services to Center members and the community as a whole. 

We are pleased to recognize our Friends contributors (gifts from July 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018) in the honor roll below. Every gift makes a difference.

Thank you for your generous support!
