Fast Facts

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. As 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 its investments in aging experts and innovations can transform how care is delivered, lowering costs and dramatically improving the health of older adults.

Total Grant Making Efforts: Since 1929, the Foundation has issued $788,276,565 million in grants.
