Today, more than 10 million people over 50 are living in poverty in the U.S. All told, more than 37 million are either already in poverty or just one life event away from slipping into it. You can help.
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.
All across the country, older Americans who have worked hard and contributed to their families and communities are facing their later years in crisis. Following the worst nationwide recession since the Great Depression, millions have lost their jobs and exhausted recession-ravaged savings. Not since the Depression era have we seen such a “perfect storm” of events result in so many seniors facing uncertain and unstable futures.
With your generous financial support, AARP Foundation’s programs can help them regain stability, take control of their lives again and create opportunities to thrive. Discover the many ways you can join AARP Foundation to help adults 50 and older reclaim the future they’ve always pictured for themselves, their children and their grandchildren.
