Increase your impact through membership

At Venice Family Clinic, we believe everyone deserves quality health care regardless of income, insurance or immigration status. We need your help now more than ever, as we continue to promote health equity for all.

Annual membership gifts support our operations and allow Venice Family Clinic to deliver innovative services and programs to all those who need us: from vaccines to medical treatments to mental health care to food distributions to housing support to early childhood development classes and so much more. Our comprehensive approach to health care gives our patients the care they need to live a healthy and full life.

Our annual membership levels range from $2,500 to $100,000 or more. Members join a select group of community leaders who share a profound commitment to advancing the Clinic’s mission and maintaining good health for everyone in our community. Members have access to special events and exclusive opportunities to engage with Clinic leaders and other like-minded supporters.

Please give an annual membership gift today, and help Venice Family Clinic promote health and well-being for individuals and families in need, from the Santa Monica Mountains through the South Bay.

History of membership at Venice Family Clinic

Venice Family Clinic’s membership program began in the 1980s when a group of dedicated donors came together to find ways to get their friends to join them in supporting the Clinic. They created the Silver Circle Gala, an exclusive fundraising event for annual membership donors.

Although we no longer host a Silver Circle Gala each year, we have creative events and engagement opportunities for our members. Memberships provide invaluable support for our ongoing operations, as well as our effort to address six major areas of need in our society, as part of the initiative we call The Power of Us:
