Mission & History

sunsetOur Mission

The mission of The Borchard Foundation Center on Law & Aging is, through education, research and service, to help improve the quality of life for elderly people, including those who are poor or otherwise isolated by lack of education, language, culture, disability or other barriers.

History

The Borchard Foundation Center on Law & Aging was authorized and created in 1998 by the Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation, which is based in Burbank, California.

In addition to funding from The Borchard Foundation, The Borchard Foundation Center on Law & Aging was generously supported for several years by the members of its Professional Advisory Board, who also served on the Partnership in Law and Aging Program mini-grants selection committee.

An Academic Advisory Board guides the academic research program and participates in conference planning. Former Borchard Fellows also participate in the selection of research grants and new fellows.
