The mission of The Boom Foundation is to improve the quality of life for those in our communities who are in the twilight of their lives, through creative fundraising and meaningful interactions.
Our name is inspired by the iconic Baby Boomer generation, whose population of 76 million will begin turning 65 in 2010. By the year 2030, 20% of the US population will be over the age of 65, driven primarily by the massive numbers of the Baby Boomer generation reaching their senior years. Because our elders will soon make up such a significant portion of our population, it is vital that we provide the ways and means of ensuring that those who paved the way for us can live out their senior years with the dignity that they deserve.
Our approach is threefold. First, we hold fundraising events to provide financial support to our beneficiary charities. Second, our members team with our beneficiaries to create meaningful volunteer opportunities. Finally, we provide an avenue through which our members can individually become involved with our beneficiary organizations. In the future we will develop programs that will provide helpful services and build meaningful relationships beteen those of diverse generations.
