Archstone Foundation


For the first time in our country's history, individuals are living well into their 80s, 90s, and beyond. This growing group of older adults offers astonishing opportunities and an array of unexpected yet exciting challenges.

Since its inception in 1985, the Archstone Foundation has responded to the implications of these changing demographics and has supported innovative responses to the emerging and unmet needs of older adults. The Foundation was a pioneer in providing funds to address elder abuse and neglect, the prevention of falls, and end-of-life care. Today, it focuses its grant making on four major areas.

  • Enabling older adults to remain in their homes and communities
  • Improving the treatment of late-life depression
  • Developing innovative responses to the family caregiving needs of older adults
  • Expanding the health care and broader workforce needed to care for and serve the rapidly growing and aging population

With a special focus on California, the Archstone Foundation welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with public and private funders, as well as nonprofit and civic leaders, to improve the well-being of older adults.
