2022 was a banner year for Senior Planet and Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) from AARP. Some of the exciting highlights from this past year include:
- Reaching New Heights: Older adults participated in Senior Planet programs over 350,000 times this year – exceeding our previous record!
- Expanding In-Person Presence: In addition to re-opening our centers and returning to partner sites, the Senior Planet Licensing Program grew from the original seven pilot partners to over 150 partner organizations in 25 states!
- Strengthening Community: We published trailblazing research on how technology can support the fight against loneliness – and every day in Senior Planet classes we made new friends and learned from one another. As Deborah in Georgia put it, “Senior Planet is like a lifeline, like blood going through your veins right into your heart.”
Now, we are asking for your help to expand our impact even further in 2023.
This is your last chance to give a tax deductible donation in 2022 to ensure the future of free, life-changing technology and fitness classes for seniors across the nation.
Thank you for your support, and Happy New Year!
