THE FRIENDS OF THE HADLEY COUNCIL ON AGING was established in 2014 to enhance financial and operational support for programs for the Hadley Council on Aging.
Memberships are the main part of our funding to support programs at the COA that are not in the town’s budget.
We are also pleased with the response to the Funding for The Future Campaign which offers naming rights to parts of our new building. There is also great support for the Leaves of Love Tree in the living room (please check the Fundraisers module).
Friends are underwriting the costs of many social programs and subsidizing other events if seniors are unable to fully fund their participation. We continue to pay for the printing of the newsletter, the annual fee for My Senior Center, various supplies, and other small items around the building.
Please consider joining us in any of the above. Your generosity will allow us to continue to assist the Senior Center in offering a large variety of opportunities to Hadley seniors so that can be more involved, and lead fuller lives and age at home. We truly appreciate your support!

A Need for Action
The Hadley Council on Aging faces a great challenge. As people live longer and the "boomer" generation retires, the Council must meet the needs of two very different groups of Seniors. Sources of government funding have not increased to meet the rise in our elder population.
Ways to Help
Every bit of support you can give to the Council on Aging make a big difference to the programs they provide our seniors. There are many ways to give:
designate us as your charitable organization on Amazon Smile
become a member of the Friends
make a separate tax-deductible donation (stock or cash)
donate your car to the Friends (still tax-deductible!)
make a contribution in honor of someone who passes
remember us in your will
participate in any of our local fundraising events
When you choose to donate your vehicle through our partner, Donate for Charity, your car is picked up free of charge and sold at auction or broken down for parts. The proceeds come back to fund our work, and you receive a receipt of your tax-deductible donation. Click on the Donate for Charity button to get started.
