  Your support of NCAP allows us to keep honoring our elders!
National Centenarian Awareness Project is
a nonprofit organization.

  Your support for our cause is greatly appreciated:
  To honor our elders and to inspire those 50 and over to make the most of their lives
  at every age.

  • Recognition certificates for centenarians, personalized; click for details
  • Centenarian and family outreach and communications
  • Our website and blog are examples of positive aging and inspirations for boomers

Since 1985 when we began our work seeking out and honoring America’s eldest citizens, the centenarian population has increased over three fold, from approximately 25,000 to over 90,000 in 2009, with projections of soon surpassing the 100,000 mark. The importance of our work in seeking out and recognizing this fastest growing segment of our population has been widely recognized by the media and scientific and medical organizations, as well as those interested in the social and societal values reflected by these special citizens.

Your financial donation will help us continue to expand our work and outreach to keep pace with this phenomenal growth. Our aim is to recognize these elders as our living links to history for the contributions they have made to our country and for the contemporary examples they set for the future of aging and the possibilities of longevity. Active centenarians are role models for our longevity.  

All donations (US Dollars) to NCAP are used to further its work without compensation to its officers or directors. No gift is too large or too small. All donations are greatly appreciated.
