2021 Annual Appeal

SWESA Socializing

Charitable Registration # 81631 4389 RR0001

SWESA’s Annual Appeal is held each fall as an opportunity for members and the general public to support SWESA. Fundraising accounts for one third of SWESA’s operating budget.

Donations are also welcome anytime during the year. All donations, big and small are appreciated. A tax deductible receipt is issued for any donation of $20.00 or more.

Our 2021 Target is $40,000

Proceeds from this year’s campaign will be used to expand our range of programming, keep fees affordable and provide both in-person and remote program participation options.

“Friends come into your life for a reason.  SWESA came into my life as a miracle.   As we age we lose our friends for many reasons and life can become lonely. I joined SWESA and life returned.  I have met so many lovely new friends and reunited with friends from years ago. After the recent loss of my husband, I received such kindness and compassion from SWESA friends.”

Thanks to early gifts from our Friends of SWESA we have been able to match the very generous donation of $10,000 by an anonymous community philanthropist!
