Founded in 1929 by John and George Hartford of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A & P), the John A. Hartford Foundation, based in New York City, is a private, nonpartisan philanthropy dedicated to improving the care of older adults.
Our efforts are critically important because the country is aging rapidly. 10,000 people turn 65 every day. The largest-ever generation of older adults is living and working longer, redefining later life, and enriching our communities and society. Comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous care that keeps older adults as healthy as possible is essential to sustaining these valuable contributions.
The John A. Hartford Foundation believes that investments in aging experts and innovations will transform how care is delivered, lowering costs and improving outcomes for older adults and their families. To this end, the Foundation focuses its grantmaking in five, inter-related areas:
We believe that investments in all five of these portfolios will together help transform how care is delivered in health systems and communities and in turn lead to dramatic improvements in the health of all older adults.
