Background

Incorporated in 1872 as a public charity; status changed to a private foundation in 2001 - Originally, the fund was incorporated as the Home for Old Men and Aged Couples, the first such residence for elderly men and aged couples who had fallen on hard times in Manhattan, NY. It was funded by a group of concerned members of the Episcopal Church, lead by the Rev. Isaac H. Tuttle, Rector of St. Luke's Church on Hudson St. in New York City's Greenwich Village. The first home was at 487 Hudson St., next door to the church.

Purpose and Activities

The fund gives direct financial support to elderly individuals (65 years of age or older, unless there are compelling circumstances that merit consideration), and nonprofit community-based organizations that provide services to seniors in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, with the goal of enabling older persons to continue living in their own homes so long as they are physically and mentally able to do so. Applicants must have been productive, contributing members of their communities during their working years.
