We Appreciate Your Gifts to the Friendship Foundation

Through the Friendship Foundation, residents, family members and other individuals and groups can give gifts that make a difference in the lives of our residents. Our not-for-profit, faith-based organization uses these fundraising gifts for our benevolence and hardship funds, which directly support our residents. Donations can also be made in honor of specific residents or staff or in memoriam.

Making a Place of Worship Possible

In 2019, we launched “Invest in Hope,” a campaign to raise $1.4 million to build a dedicated chapel on our Chesterfield campus. Both the Chesterfield and Sunset Hills campuses have expanded, adding new residences, amenities and common spaces. This campaign raised dedicated funds for a place of worship, aligning with our values, mission and vision.

Each community is a properly authorized, tax-exempt corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Friendship Village is governed by an independent board of directors, which includes both community leaders and village residents. All gifts to the Friendship Foundation are deductible to the fullest extent the tax laws allow, as related to each donor’s circumstances.
