Make A Difference

Helping others is the heart of what we do at Aviva. We’re grateful to those whose generosity helps us care for people in our compassionate community.

Our coordinated fundraising approach heightens our ability to provide assistance to the residents, families and other people we serve in the most effective way possible.

We appreciate gifts from individuals and organizations and accept each gesture with sincere gratitude. Join us in supporting healthy aging and infinite possibilities.



Interested in Giving?
You don’t have to be wealthy to make a significant gift to Aviva. That’s because a planned gift allows you to make a gift not from your income, but from the assets that you own.

In many cases, a planned gift can increase your income and reduce your taxes, giving you greater security and benefits than if you had not made a gift. Here are simple explanations of just a few of the options available for you to consider giving. When you make a planned gift to Aviva, you are creating a legacy that will ensure the continued success of our community on behalf of its residents and their families.

You can be a catalyst for change. Your support helps bring infinite possibilities. If you have questions about making a planned gift or would like more information, we are happy to work with you or your advisor to help craft a gift that meets your personal and financial goals.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit the residents of Aviva after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that is best for you.

Please discuss your gift planning desires with your attorney or tax advisor before making a decision on this matter. The information on this site is for informational purposes only and should not be considered legal advice.


Benevolent Care Program.
Your generous support allows us to provide our residents with quality medical care and enriching programs that nourish the soul, challenge the mind, and keep our seniors safe and connected to the community. Your support and generosity allow our residents the ability to have an enriching life and age with dignity.

“What we love about the Aviva campus is that the residents are not simply cared for – they are truly cared about – and it shows in the high quality of lifestyle and care provided. We are so very proud to support this campus and all that it does for our seniors and our community.” 
Debbie and Larry Haspel

Donate Today

A tree cannot thrive unless its roots are healthy. Aviva cannot grow and prosper unless it is firmly rooted in financial resources. Donors to our community provide the funds that are necessary for the well being of the most vulnerable members of our community, our elderly.


For more information about other ways to give, including Bequests, Trusts, Annuities, Sponsorships, and Endowments, please contact the Development office at 941-203-6237.

Life & Legacy

At Aviva, we not only believe in creating an incredible Jewish community for seniors today but also working to ensure the Jewish community of tomorrow. Working with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Aviva is proud to serve as a Life & Legacy partner.

Leaving a Legacy Gift through the Life & Legacy program is more than making a simple donation. Each Legacy Donor represents a commitment to ensuring that Aviva will be able to meet the ever-evolving needs of the growing elderly population. By participating in this unique program you are working to preserving the identity of the Sarasota Jewish Community through a commitment to tradition, culture, and heritage.

Please join us in this mission by making a Legacy Gift in your will, trust, retirement account or insurance policy.

On behalf of the entire Aviva Community we want to thank the following individuals for joining us as Life & Legacy Donors.
