John A. Hartford Foundation
The John A. Hartford Foundation, based in New York City, is a private, nonpartisan, national
philanthropy dedicated to improving the care of older adults. For more than three decades, the
organization has been the leader in building a field of experts in aging and testing and
replicating innovative approaches to care. The Foundation has three areas of emphasis:
creating age-friendly health systems, supporting family caregivers, and improving serious illness
and end-of-life care. Working with its grantees, the Foundation strives to change the status quo
and create a society where older adults can continue their vital contributions.
