For general information:
The Silver Century Foundation is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization. Its IRS identification number is 30-0100604.
The Silver Century Foundation seeks journalists, columnists and photojournalists, as well as essayists, humorists, poets and scholars who write on the issues of aging. Please note that the Foundation's concern with aging focuses on the process of growing older and challenges the view that equates aging with physical and mental deterioration. We see life's later years as a time of fulfillment. We are interested in how society influences the experience of growing older and wish to attract to the website people of all ages to consider and plan for their own aging.
Interested writers should phone (609) 430-4790 or send a letter of inquiry, a resume and three writing samples by mail.
The Silver Century Foundation promotes a positive view of aging. The Foundation challenges entrenched and harmful stereotypes, encourages dialogue between generations, advocates planning for the second half of life, and raises awareness to educate and inspire everyone to live long, healthy, empowered lives.
"Adding years to people's lives through the magic of science and medicine, however impressive, is an insufficient ambition for American Society. Our objective, must be to add new life to those years."
President John F. Kennedy, 1961 White House Conference on Aging
