About the Ageless Award

Each year, the Ageless Award is given to individuals who are 75 years or older, demonstrate the importance of living a purposeful life and who continue to make significant contributions to society: as volunteers, philanthropists, mentors and civic leaders. AGE+ gives out this award because we think it’s important to celebrate people who have gone above and beyond throughout their lives to serve others, and who inspire people to do more in their communities.

AGE+’s annual Ageless Award Luncheon and fundraiser is our way of reminding others how important the contributions of older adults are to our communities, not only because of the work they’ve done throughout their lives, but also because of the contributions they continue to make into older age.

Ageless Award Honorees have to meet the following criteria:

  • 75 years or older
  • An individual who has made and continues to make substantial contributions to the lives of others
  • An individual who serves as a model showing that our elders are a significant part of the community fabric

The Age-Friendly Business Awards!

AGE+ began hosting these awards in 2022 to honor businesses and organizations committed to creating a welcoming environment and providing great services for people of all ages. They recognize the ways older adults impact the economy and the value they bring to places of business.

These awards are provided in partnership with the Age-Friendly Portland and Multnomah County Employment and the Economy Committee. For more information, email RLe@ageplus.org.

Inaugural AGE+ Visionary Award: Honoring the Contributions of Dr. Keren Brown Wilson

Keren’s pioneering career, legacy, and work as a visionary have shaped options and opportunities for older adults across Oregon and globally for over four decades. Because of this, AGE+ and our Board of Directors are delighted to celebrate her at the 2024 Ageless Awards with a new award created to honor her innovative lifework and leadership as someone who dared to challenge and change the status quo.

This award will be presented during our Ageless Award celebration.
