SWESA’s 2022 Annual Appeal began October 1st – with a bang! Through the amazing support of a few Major Donors and the Friends of SWESA, we have already raised $8,239.68.  Half of this is pledged if we can match the donations. Our goal is at least $40,000 this year.

Will you make a donation today to help us reach our goal?  You can double the value of your donation.

All donations, big and small are appreciated. A tax deductible receipt is issued for any donation of $20.00 or more.

Fundraising accounts for one third of SWESA’s operating budget. Annual Appeal donations go directly to offset operational expenses, ensuring we can maintain a low annual membership fee of $30, provide affordable programs and expand programs that meet the interests and needs of older adults.

“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.”
