Welcome

The Friends Foundation has an opportunity to have all donations matched up to $2,500.00 through the GWIL Campaign 2015.

Please help increase our chances of having your contribution matched by donating today. Click on the "Donate" button to the left of this page.

NOTE: When reviewing your donation look for a + sign below the Dripping Springs Community Foundation name. You MUST click on the + and then enter "The Friends Foundation" as the organization you are donating to for our chance to have your donation matched. Thanks in advance for your donation!

How will my donation be matched? Through the Dripping Community Foundation, DSCF, and as a registered partner of the Givin' Where I'm Livin'  or GWIL campaign, The Friends Foundation, a 501(c)(3), will be eligible to receive matching funds up to $2,500.00, based on our participation in and fund-raising performance during the 2015 GWIL campaign.

DSCF will accept matching fund donations online from 12:01 am on April 19, 2015 through 6 pm on April 26, 2015 via PayPal.

How else can I help? Donations may also be made in person by cash, check or credit card (if operable) at the DSCF Founder’s Day booth in downtown Dripping Springs on Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, 2015.

Our Beginnings: In 2004, a small group of community volunteers got together with the idea of helping the elderly of Dripping Springs, with a focus of keeping them living independently at home. The Friends Foundation came to life in March 2004. Several years later, with the help of our members, supporters, volunteers and the community, we now have many outstanding programs which take care of our valuable senior citizens. Our Daily Bread is The Friends Foundation's flagship program. We hope the website provides you with a wealth of resources and information to serve your needs. Should you need additional information or are interested in joining our organization, please feel free to contact us online.

The Friends Foundation is proud that all money raised is used to benefit the elderly in our community. We have no salaries and very little overhead. Many expenses are donated or provided at a reduced rate. Those expenses which are not donated are limited to expenses which directly benefit our fund-raising – such as the cost of food and advertising for the annual barbecue fund-raiser and the cost of meals associated with Our Daily Bread program.

Our 22nd Annual BBQ Fundraiser

An Evening with Live Music, Salt Lick BBQ, and More: Thursday, October 8, 2015

The Salt Lick Pavilion gates open at 5 p.m. and the Barbecue buffet line will be open from 6-8 p.m. Homemade desserts prepared by the Bluebonnet Auxiliary will be on sale to raise funds for volunteer programs at Hill Country Care Nursing & Rehab Center. The award winning Hot Texas Swing Band will provide musical entertainment. Arrive early to preview the live and silent auction (voted #1 in Central Texas) items, and purchase tickets for three fabulous prizes to be awarded in a raffle drawing. Mr. Bama Brown of KVET 98.1 FM radio will be the Master of Ceremonies.

BBQ tickets are $20 (cash or check) per person (children 6 and under are free) may be purchased at the door. For advanced ticket purchases with credit or debit card call (512) 894-0756.

This annual fundraiser is critically important in helping to provide necessary services to the needy elderly in the greater Dripping Springs Area. Sponsorships and donations help to provide meals for Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the homebound, medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency, financial assistance in times of dire need, funding for special events at Hill Country Care for their residents, and numerous other programs beneficial to the elderly. The Friends Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
