Funding

SCOA receives funding by:

  • Donations received through area business and individuals
  • Donations received through the Friends organization
  • Grants, the largest being an annual grant given by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs in Boston where a dollar amount is given per senior in town.
  • Local tax dollars appropriated at the Annual Town Meeting

Friends of the Shrewsbury Senior Center

The Friends of the Shrewsbury Senior Center, Inc. is the fundraising arm of the organization that can also supplement the department's budget and offer other support. This vital organization allows the Senior Center to fund the mailing of the Council on Aging Senior Edition newsletter, purchase equipment and pay for other special events or needs.
