Friends of the COA

A Dedicated Community

The Friends Of the Bedford Council On Aging (The Friends) plays a pivotal role in supporting the local council on aging by organizing fundraising initiatives that generate needed financial support. Through memberships, events, and outreach programs, the organization aims to raise awareness and interest in our mission, compelling the community to actively participate and contribute to the cause. By fostering a sense of collective responsibility and engagement, the FBCOA strives to secure essential funds that enable the Bedford Council on Aging to enhance and expand its services, improving the quality of life for our seniors and fostering a more age-friendly community.

You may become a new member at any time during the year. Kindly note that membership dues are payable annually, with our membership year starting each September.
