Sponsorship Opportunities for Our Elderbration and Walk to End Elder Isolation

We invite you to join us for a victory lap around Jamaica Pond in celebration of FriendshipWorks’ 40th Anniversary at our Elderbration and 9th Annual Walk to End Elder Isolation to be held on Sunday, May 19, 2024!

Our annual pet-friendly and family-friendly Elderbration event is an opportunity to show appreciation for older adults, and make them feel connected and treasured in their community.  Over 300 neighbors including healthy-aging partners, families, and civic leaders will come together for the celebration featuring food, entertainment, live music, and cultural performances, and we’d be thrilled to have you join us as a sponsor! Proceeds from this fundraising event will help support our critical mission of reducing social isolation and strengthen our collective force of 600 trained volunteers who provide highly personalized programming and friendship to over 1,600 older adults in Boston, Brookline, Newton, Cambridge, and Somerville every year.

It’s an exciting time to be part of the FriendshipWorks community. Just last May, the U.S. Surgeon General issued an advisory stating that “social connection is a fundamental human need – as essential to survival as food, water and shelter,” and recognized the importance of community-based solutions like FriendshipWorks. Whether it’s a weekly visit with a friend, completing a household task, or someone to accompany them on a medical appointment, FriendshipWorks can help elders at no charge – and your support makes it happen. Not only that, but companies that actively engage in corporate social responsibility initiatives build trust among employees and consumers and increase brand loyalty and profitability!

The FriendshipWorks team looks forward to welcoming you as a proud sponsor of our “Elderbration” and 9th Annual Walk to End Elder Isolation on May 19, 2024. Thank you!
