A Senior Planet Milestone!

It has been just over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic forced Senior Planet to go virtual.  In that time we have come together as a community to forge new bonds, climb to inspiring heights and transform the way the world views aging. 

The undeniable highlight of this time of transition and growth has been connecting with older adults across the nation. In two years, Senior Planet grew from network of under 5,000 participants to more than  20,000.

We love our new community members and we are so grateful to receive their love in return!  

One of the best ways to show love for Senior Planet is by becoming a Supporter…and that is just what our community has done.  

A Major Milestone!

This past month, we achieved the exciting milestone of having at least one Senior Planet Supporter in each of the 50 states! From Tennessee to California, from Minnesota to Louisiana and everyplace in between–even Hawaii and Alaska!–older adults have stepped up and donated just $1 (or more) annually to support the free education of tens of thousands of their peers. 

Join the movement!  

Want to be a part of it? Click here to give $1 or more to start receiving impact-based benefits–Quarterly Impact Reports, an Annual Technology Review, volunteer opportunities, focus group invitations and more…like exclusive invitations to Supporter-only events.

  1. I happened on to senior planet during Covid online. And I’ve been very thankful for it because on days that I am home alone, it puts me in touch with the outside world.. however, I’m curious where the name senior planet came from?
    I’ve tried to get a lot of my friends interested in it, and I think they’re turned off by the name. I think to them it sounds a little hokey and they don’t trust it. I wonder if some thing like Senior Connect or some other name would be more of a turn on

  2. Congratulations Senior Planet. Having a supporter in each state is fantastic. The little engine that could has made it to the top.

    Senior Planet has come a long way since I joined in the Fall of 2015. For me, being a supporter of Senior Planet helped me to upgrade my computer skills and learn new ones. I have taken nine classes between January 2016 – June 2018. Then I returned to college after 38 years.
    I am constantly spreading the word about Senior Planet. Thanks Tom for your vision.
