Supporting Organizations

For more than 50 years, AARP has been serving its members and society by creating positive social change.

AARP’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for all as we age, leading positive social change, and delivering value to members through information, advocacy, and service.

We believe strongly in the principles of collective purpose, collective voice, and collective purchasing power. These principles guide our efforts.

AARP works tirelessly to fulfill the vision: a society in which everyone lives their life with dignity and purpose, and in which AARP helps people fulfill their goals and dreams.

AARP Foundation’s mission is to serve vulnerable people ages 50+ by creating and advancing effective solutions that help them secure the essentials. AARP Foundation helps millions of older Americans who struggle to meet their basic need for nutritious food, safe and affordable housing, adequate income, and much-needed personal connections.

The LTSS Scorecard is a charitable project made possible by a grant from AARP Foundation, with support from The SCAN Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, and The John A. Hartford Foundation and has been updated every three years since 2011.


The Commonwealth Fund

The Commonwealth Fund, among the first private foundations started by a woman philanthropist—Anna M. Harkness—was established in 1918 with the broad charge to enhance the common good.

The mission of The Commonwealth Fund is to promote a high-performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society’s most vulnerable, including low-income people, the uninsured, and people of color.

The Fund carries out this mandate by supporting independent research on health care issues and making grants to improve health care practice and policy.
