Monthly Giving Friendship Circle

Join our Friendship Circle!

Little Brothers' Friendship Circle is a group of donors dedicated to bringing friendship to elders across Chicago year-round. By giving monthly (or quarterly, if that's more convenient), you sustain our programs, providing socialization, engagement and connection to elders living without the support of friends or family. 

In addition to alleviating the isolation and loneliness of nearly 1,300 elders daily, you'll receive:

"Having had elderly parents, I can picture your people being with elderly lonely people and blessing them every time I write a check!"

One of our Friendship Circle donors, Dalene, shared the reason she gives monthly. 

For more information, contact Sherri Gorski, Assistant Director of Development, by email or at 312.455.1000.

Become a monthly donor today!

Your montly gift will sustain our programs and celebrations of life, like our monthly Birthday Party, where elders who share the same birthday month feel remembered and celebrated, just as every person deserves to feel on their special day.


Elders, many who dress up for the occassion, are picked up at home and brought to the party by our volunteer drivers, who ensure our elders spend an afternoon among friends enjoying great conversation, lunch, music, and dancing. Before cake is served, our volunteers gather together to sing "Happy Birthday" to our elders and pass out a birthday gift, a useful item chosen by our Elder Advisory Committee each year. For our homebound elders or those who are unable to make it to the party, volunteers bring the celebration with them during a special in-home celebration, complete with birthday cupcakes to enjoy together or an outing to a favorite restaurant. 


Your monthly gift can do a lot! A gift from $10 a month can make a difference in the life of a Chicago elder.
