About Us

Vision & Mission

The SCAN Foundation envisions a society where all of us can age well with purpose.

We pursue this vision by igniting bold and equitable changes in how older adults age in both home and community.

Our Priority Populations

We believe that if we improve the aging experiences for marginalized older adults and their networks of support, it will improve for everyone. Therefore, our work prioritizes:

• Older people of color
• Older adults with lower income*
• Older residents of geographically underserved areas

*Defined as income that is below 400% of the federal poverty level; also defined as “duals,” “near duals.”

Where We Work

We work at the diverse intersections of aging with partnerships that expand across the aging, healthcare, disability, policy, social entrepreneur, racial justice, and social justice sectors.

With deep roots across the state of California, our work aims to influence national transformation of the systems and supports that enable all older adults to age well at home with purpose.
