Working Together to Improve the Quality of Life for Seniors

Cheryl Wilson Memorial Fund

Cheryl Wilson was an advocate for older adults who devoted many years to helping the poor and elderly of Broward County. Ms. Wilson had completed a term as President of BCOA when she died of cancer at the age of 58 in 2006. 

In honor of her dedication to Broward’s seniors, BCOA established the Cheryl Wilson Memorial Fund to provide small grants to persons 55+ years who demonstrate need and the ability to remain solvent after receiving a grant.

You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to the fund.
