Celebrating 25 Years

Thank you for supporting our mission for 25 years. We could not have done it without you.

When we started the Friendship Circle, we could not have imagined the number and variety of programs that would emerge, that we would build three buildings on two campuses, or that we would be able to improve the lives of thousands of people.

The generous outpouring of support has been heartwarming and humbling. But we still have a lot of work to do. Friendship Circle has become an organization that people love, enjoy and benefit from, but even more, an organization the community relies on. Now, it is our responsibility to ensure that as we go into the next 25 years, Friendship Circle will be in a position to continue to respond to, and address, the needs that exists today and be prepared to adapt to the needs of tomorrow.

As we continue our mission of Forever Friendship, we invite you to share our vision and oportunity by participating in our inaugural Friendship Circle endowment fund. Your contribution will help us continue to provide friendship for future generations.

Join 1,000 Strong!


There comes a time in our lives when we realize that giving a gift is more rewarding than receiving one.

1,000 Strong is a challenge to gather 1,000 supporters to give a Gift of Friendship that will last forever by immediately providing life-changing friendships and opportunities to everyone who participates at Friendship Circle.

Here are some examples of how your Forever Gift gift can impact a life forever:

  • Volunteers have become special education teachers and social workers.
  • Participants have developed life long friendships with their peers.
  • Adults with special needs are now employed from the training they received.
  • Teens are becoming leaders and raising awareness for mental health-related challenges.
  • These are just some of the examples of how your gift has forever made an impact.

There are two ways you can join 1,000 Strong:
1. Give a recurring (monthly) gift + receive a special edition FC magnet
2. Give a one-time donation
All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by a group of generous donors and all recurring donations (for 12 months) will be included in this match! (Up to $150,000)
