FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION

The Friends of the Foundation was started in 2017 to fund the administrative and operational costs of successfully running the Suffolk Foundation, ensuring that more unrestricted funds are available to use for community grants.

Become a Friend

To become a Friend of the Foundation, we ask that you make an annual gift of $100-$1,000 to our Friends of the Foundation Operating Fund. Gifts to the Operating Fund keep the Suffolk Foundation fiscally sound and will ensure the sustainability of our work in the community.

Those who wish to give at a higher level may want to consider the Next Step Campaign, our Operating Endowment campaign. See below.
