Our Mission is two-fold: to raise funds which support classes and programs at the Acton Senior Center and to advocate for issues of concern to Acton’s seniors.
Our Story: The Friends of the Acton COA was formed in 1981 and recognized as a 501c3 non-profit organization in 1982. Through our support a wide range of opportunities are offered, free of charge to seniors living in Acton. Their variety indicates our recognition that Acton’s population is growing and diversifying. We raise funds and provide financial assistance for both regular and special programs offered at the Acton Senior Center. Most classes and programs are free to Acton senior citizens thanks in a large part to the fundraising efforts of the Friends.
Our annual appeal in the fall is the major source of the funds we raise.
Thank you for your generous support, attendance and donations which help spread kindness, care and happiness to our senior community.
