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?
