Over 30 years of creative and committed community outreach throughout the Bay Area
Friends of On Lok (FOL) was founded in 1987 to help support On Lok’s fundraising needs and community outreach efforts. Since then, the all-volunteer organization has raised more than $2 million for On Lok’s programs.
Community, commitment and care are common values linking Friends of On Lok members. Together the 180 members organize major fundraising events, including their annual Friends of On Lok Fashion Show, and volunteer for and enhance special projects at On Lok’s centers. As ambassadors in the community, the Friends of On Lok provide an invaluable resource to On Lok’s mission of serving elders in their own neighborhoods. Membership in Friends of On Lok offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the care of San Francisco’s elderly. Women and men of all ages are welcome.
Members pay a lifetime membership fee and are encouraged to become involved in committees and projects. Events include quarterly meetings, membership teas and special presentations and workshops.
