Shircliff Society

A young professionals society


Established in 2011, the Shircliff Society engages and inspires developing leaders to become advocates for a compassionate and just society. The Shircliff Society focuses on improving the health of our community through volunteerism and philanthropy. Members are between the ages of 21 and 45, reside in Northeast Florida, and dedicate at least 2 hours per quarter to the Society.

The Shircliff Society is named after Robert T. “Bob” Shircliff (1928-2020). Mr. Shircliff helped transform Jacksonville with his servant leadership and philanthropic work that spanned more than a half-century.  He often said his idea of a perfect day was doing something for someone without expecting anything in return. Members of the Shircliff Society strive to live by his example and work to carry on his legacy for generations to come.


Shircliff Society members spread awareness and raise funds for the Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation.  This is done through a variety of volunteer projects, personal growth opportunities, and an annual fundraiser called the Bowtie Ball – affectionately named after Mr. Shircliff who was always seen sporting his signature bowtie.
