An Important Message from AustinUP

April 5, 2024

Dear friends and supporters,

AustinUP has been a proud advocate for older adults in Austin, providing programs and services that help them live better lives and stay engaged in the community. We have also worked to change negative perceptions about aging, and we are proud of the impact we have made.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closure of AustinUP. This decision was not made lightly, and we are deeply grateful for the many years of support we have received from across the community.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our board members, volunteers, donors, and staff for their dedication and support over the past 10 years. We are also grateful to the countless older adults who have participated in our programs and shared their stories with us. While AustinUP may be closing, our legacy will live on. We encourage you to continue to support other organizations that are working to improve the lives of older adults in Austin.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

AustinUP Board of Directors
