AARP Foundation serves vulnerable people 50 and older by creating and advancing effective solutions that help them secure the essentials.
We're tackling senior poverty by sparking bold, innovative solutions that help vulnerable older adults build ecomonic opportunity and social connectedness — fostering resilience, strengthening communities and restoring hope.
For 57 years, we've aided America's poor and isolated seniors. As AARP's charitable affiliate, we serve AARP members and nonmembers alike.
Operating at the intersection of collaboration, innovation, legal advocacy and grantmaking, we bring together industry, government, activists, and volunteers to forge practical approaches that pair brainpower with some serious willpower.
AARP Foundation earns a high rating for accountability from a leading charity evaluator.
Eighty-one cents of every dollar we spend goes toward programs and services that help low-income older adults. We have met every one of the Better Business Bureau’s 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
