Since incorporation on April 24, 1996, the Friends of Newburyport Council on Aging (FONCOA) has augmented services and programs for nearly 4000 seniors of the Newburyport, Massachusetts area by assisting the city supported Newburyport Council on Aging. Our roles are collaborative but defined.
The FONCOA is a non-profit tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. It has a Certificate of Solicitation from the Division of Public Charities of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The Friends were instrumental in raising money towards building the Newburyport Senior Community Center.
The FONCOA continues to raise funds through social events, membership dues, and various donations.
The mission of the Friends of the Newburyport Council on Aging is to advocate for and to address the needs of seniors by raising and expending funds in conjunction with the Newburyport Council on Aging and the community.
