LBFE receives no state or federal funding. LBFE is a proud recipient of a grant from city of San Francisco to support our Visiting Volunteer Program.

Our work is supported by the generosity and compassion of individual donors, and in partnership with foundations, healthcare organizations, corporations and community groups.

There are many ways for you to contribute and support the important work we do ensuring isolated elders throughout San Francisco feel connected and cared for.
Every dollar helps and is appreciated.
We cannot do this vital, life-sustaining work without you.
Event Sponsorship
Throughout the year, LBFE-SF offers year-round programs and social events for elders and volunteers. LBFE Sponsors enjoy many benefits. In addition to knowing you are supporting the only SF non-profit that provides companionship to isolated elders, your organization will build brand loyalty and gain exposure to over 3,500 volunteers and community partners. By becoming a 2017 Event Sponsor, your organization will benefit from numerous year-long promotional opportunities while reaching new and diverse audiences. Please contact Cathy Michalec by email at [email protected] or by phone at (415) 771-7957 if you want to become an event sponsor.
Matched Gifts / Payroll Deductions
Many businesses and corporations match donations that their employees make to non-profit organizations. Some allow employees to designate gifts based on their voluntary involvement. Check with your Human Resources or Corporate Philanthropy department to see if your company has a matching gift program so you can double your contribution to LBFE.
Planned Gifts
Making a bequest to Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly is a wonderful way to make a lasting contribution to the people and programs of LBFE while reducing estate taxes. There are many benefits to planned giving and ways to ensure your family is cared for, while leaving a legacy to LBFE. The Armand Legacy League was created to recognize our philanthropic friends who make deferred or planned gifts to Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly. It is important to explore your options with an estate planning attorney to maximize your tax benefits.
