Building Philanthropy for a Better Florida


December 11, 2017

Friendship Centers, a nonprofit organization serving older adults in Southwest Florida for more than 40 years, has received a capping grant of $13,386 from the Frank E. Duckwall Foundation. The grant brings the total raised to $43,386, the amount needed to start removing worn flooring from the medical clinic patient rooms, hallways, staff areas and waiting rooms in preparation for much-needed new flooring throughout.

Several organizations provided funding for the project: $7,500 from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Arthur T. Esslinger Memorial Fund, $13,500 from the Linnie E. Dalbeck Foundation, $5,000 from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s Community Health Endowment Fund and a small contribution from Friendship Centers’ building fund.
