Welcome to Sertoma of Bradenton

Service To Mankind. It’s more than just how we got our name

Service To Mankind has been our foundation for over 100 years. Sertomans across the country are unified with a single purpose: serve our communities and improve the lives of those who need help. Our mission and our passion is to improve the quality of life for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss through education and support.

The Sertoma Club of Bradenton has supported many of those needing assistance in the Manatee County area for over 60 years.

We have recently provided financial support to Turning Points which provides a remarkable variety of free services designed to assist individuals and families on their path to financial stability and independence. Turning Points is the one stop shop for preventing and ending homelessness in our local community. For more information on Turning Points please go to their website at: http://tpmanatee.org/

Lots of Ways We Can Help


Serving mankind starts locally. Sertoma Club of Bradenton helps our local community and many charitable organizations in Manatee and Sarasota county.
