The Aviva Foundation supports the mission and vision of Aviva – A Campus for Senior Life. Together, we can enrich the lives of our seniors and the greater community.
In response to the needs of the senior community of Sarasota-Manatee in 1987, the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Housing Council had a vision to develop Sarasota’s only rental senior living community offering a full continuum of care – independent living, assisted living, secure memory care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation. Their vision became the current campus of Aviva, which uniquely utilizes a medical model to provide a broad array of services and programs.
In fulfilling its role, our Foundation encourages contributions from donors whose personal values and philanthropic goals are in concert with Aviva and its mission.
