Join Us!
The Friends of Wellesley Council on Aging 
is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks 
to create a vibrant aging experience to enrich 
the lives of Wellesley citizens 60 and over by 
providing financial support for special programs, 
activities and other needs of the COA.

​We desire to improve the welfare of all of 
Wellesley Seniors by helping to provide an 
environment for comfortable, friendly and 
supportive social contact. 

Our objectives include: 
  • Support Programs, Services and Facilities.
  • Help expand programs, classes and clinics. 
  • Fund the purchase and maintenance of equipment.
  • Fundraise for the COA through memberships, sponsorships, corporate gifts and events.

New Era Fund

The construction of the Tolles Parsons Council on Aging building begins a new era for Wellesley residents and our growing population of seniors, enriching their lives with physical fitness, learning, social engagement and intergenerational activities. 
Your financial support is needed with the opening of the warm and welcoming dedicated facility, and the launch of new and exciting activities, to maximize the opportunities for seniors to develop a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
Your gift of any amount is essential to support the needs of Wellesley Seniors.

JOIN US -- We need your help!
The Friends of Wellesley Council on Aging needs your help. We are actively pursuing board members, directors and volunteers including: event organizers, marketing assistance, computer skills, finance, legal, drivers, event management, helpers and more.

Why are funds needed 
beyond the amount 
budgeted by Town Meeting?

  • To purchase or upgrade furnishings, equipment and technology not included in the budget
  • To provide for future maintenance and repair beyond normal wear & tear
  • To support increased participation that will follow the opening of the new facility
  • To augment town funding in 2017 and beyond: Wellesley residents age 60 and over represent 20% of our population, yet the Council on Aging receives only 1/3rd of 1% of the annual town budget to provide programs & vital services 
How can I contribute?
  • Cash donations
  • Allocation of equities, mutual funds, bonds and other financial instruments
  • Endowments
  • Bequests
  • Challenge grants
  • Pledges over time
  • Naming rights and recognition program
