Annual Ageless Award and Luncheon
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. JFRF 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.
JFRF’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.
- 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

What does [being ageless] mean? Nobody is ageless. I’m not ageless. None of you are ageless. . . but as I thought about it, there is a way in which I became ageless . . and every single one of you is either ageless or has the potential to be ageless. For me, to be ageless means to reach a point in your life when you can reflect on the years of your life and begin to realize how much of yourself you have imparted to someone else who will continue on that path. Every parent is ageless. Every teacher is ageless. – Rabbi Joshua Stampfer at the 2017 Ageless Award Luncheon
