Lifetime Arts has stayed true to our mission and expanded our impact in our field in each of the years since our founding in 2008, and 2021 was no exception. This past year, we added 20 new state arts agency partners, and continued work with national, state, and municipal partners, such as the American Alliance of Museums, the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, and the National Guild for Community Arts Education. We delivered hundreds of training hours to more than 800 people across the U.S., and coached 42 partner organizations in 26 states and territories to successfully deliver 116 creative aging programs. We did all of this through the continued, generous support of Aroha Philanthropies, New York State Council on the Arts and Office for the Aging, The May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust, The New York Community Trust, and The Wyoming Community Foundation.
