About The Center at Belvedere
The Center is a nationally accredited, award-winning nonprofit organization that creates healthy aging opportunities for adults aged 50 and older through social engagement, physical well-being, civic involvement, creativity, and lifelong learning. Since opening in 1960, we have never stopped growing and evolving to meet the changing needs of our community. We rely on philanthropy to support 60% of our annual operating budget as we work to address the gap between health span and lifespan.
