Due to our SFA membership being in the most vulnerable age group (60+), and in keeping with the nationwide effort to limit the spread of the Covid-19 Virus so as not to overburden our medical system, I have decided to cancel all of our activities beginning March 13 through midApril 2020. I did this in consultation with our Board of Directors and several members scheduled to host events. The health of our membership is the first priority at this time.
The plan is for the Board of Directors to meet on April 13 to reassess the situation and decide when activities can resume. The April newsletter will be delayed until that time. This website will be updated to reflect activities when they are reinstated.

Society for the Arts
Active Singles 50+
Society for the Arts, a singles organization for members age 50+, raises money to benefit the arts in the Phoenix metropolitan area through social activities, fundraising and member contributions. Since its founding in 1986, SFA has donated many thousands of dollars as well as hundreds of hours of volunteer service to the arts community.
The Mission of Society for the Arts is to raise money through social events and fundraising to benefit the arts in the greater Phoenix area. Society for the Arts provides a focal point for single adults interested in socializing and in supporting the arts in Arizona. Social, educational and cultural events which appeal to single adults are organized and made available to all members for their enjoyment and participation.
We are an all-volunteer organization and our events and activities are organized by our members. All SFA members are invited to participate and organize. Just let us know how you want to be involved! Our Board of Directors is made up of hard working volunteers, and the newsletter and website are also maintained by volunteers. Names and email addresses of current Officers and Board Members are listed on the front page of the SFA Newsletter. Click here to see the SFA Newsletter.
We are an organization which supports the arts while having fun! As a member you can enjoy attending SFA activities, as few or as many as you wish. Our social events include a wide range of interests and opportunities. Click here to see our Calendar of Events for this month!
All SFA members in good standing are welcome at every event. Guests are also welcome, as defined in our SFA Guest Policy. Click here to see our SFA Policies.
Each event promotes comfortable and stimulating social interaction among single adults. Cultural and arts groups supported by SFA often give special consideration to SFA members for their public events. Group attendance at these events provides opportunities to develop intellectual and social relationships. Friendships and networking are also among the many benefits of membership.
