AARP Foundation

39 million older adults are threatened by poverty. That’s equal to the population of California.

Working for and with older adults, AARP Foundation is on a mission to change that number to zero. Last year, we secured nearly $1 billion to help seniors meet their basic needs — through benefits, tax refunds, and good jobs— and partnered with a dedicated corps of older adult volunteers who are lifting up their communities. Together, we’re building a brighter future. Join us.
