Friends of the Marion Council on Aging
The Friends of Marion COA (FMCOA), founded in 2012, is a private non-profit corporation with a 501(c)(3) status, whose primary purpose is to seek donations through memberships, fundraising events, sponsorships and/or corporate gifts to financially assist the various projects that support and enhance the operation of the Marion Council on Aging. While the COA works through its Board of Directors to implement programs with a limited budget appropriated each year by Town Meeting, and supplementary funds from grants, the Friends assists with beyond-budget expenses to expand and enhance the programs of the COA.
In addition, we are an advocate for the COA and for older adults in our town. Our long range goal is to assist the town in obtaining a center dedicated to our community where seniors can gather for support, socialization, fitness and/or other services, allowing our seniors the support they need to live enriched and independent lives.
