Get Involved

As a publicly supported 501(c)(3) organization, AustinUP relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and community groups to advance our mission. Our volunteers, business members and sponsors are essential to our work.

“Austin has one of the nation’s fastest-growing populations of older adults. As our community welcomes these new neighbors, AustinUP is connecting city leaders, local nonprofits, university researchers and age-tech entrepreneurs to help us focus on ways to make life better for them as they age.”

Steve Adler, Mayor, City of Austin


AustinUP provides tools – including data, insight, focus group opportunities, community connections, etc. – for businesses and entrepreneurs to help expand their role in the longevity marketplace. We also are shining a spotlight on age-friendly businesses as we work to implement the Age-friendly Austin Action Plan, and AustinUP business members will have first-hand access to information and opportunities. We invite you to review our membership benefits and join AustinUP. For more information, contact Teresa Sansone Ferguson, AustinUP Executive Director, at or 512.963.3191.
