Honoring the past and Securing the Future

Friends Homes was incorporated in 1958 and began providing care more than 50 years ago. As we move into the future, your support is essential. Guided by Quaker principles, Friends Homes offers an environment which encourages independence and a sense of wholeness, wellness and security, at reasonable cost, so that each resident may live a fulfilling life. That’s our mission. Your giving makes it possible, and, with so many ways to give, we make it easy.

Memorials, Honorariums, and Individual Gifts

Making a gift in honor of someone or as a memorial to honor a loved one is a wonderful way to recognize a special person while also supporting Friends Homes. Many times, residents or family members wish to direct memorial gifts to benefit Friends Homes. We are honored to receive gifts in memory of former residents. Please contact us if you need language that could be included in an obituary. One-time, individual charitable gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign or for any reason or occasion are also appreciated. No gift is too large or too small to make a difference at Friends Homes.

Gifts Using the IRA Charitable Rollover

Legislation was signed that permanently extends the IRA Charitable Rollover. This provision allows those who are 70 ½ and older to donate as much as $100,000 directly from an IRA to a charity. Please read document for more information.

Making a donation online is a quick and convenient way to show your support of the Friends Homes mission.
