The last year has seen us firmly establish ourselves in the community as a source for news, educational materials and advocacy, and we’ve successfully funded more life extension projects at

A number of people in the community have recently been asking us about our plans for the new year. With 2018 well underway, it’s a great time to talk about the year ahead and what we have planned.

We think that the best person to tell you more about our vision and the year ahead is our president Keith Comito, so here is Keith to tell you all about what to expect from the LEAF team in the coming year.

We would like to thank the community, particularly the Lifespan Heroes, for their continued support; we cannot do what we do without you, and having you standing with us makes all the difference.

    Well done on 2017 Keith!

    A $1,000,000+ crowdfunding raise sounds really ambitious. But you won’t know until you try.

    I hope that your Heroes campaign gets to 10,000 per month so that you can host the New York conference and help startups link with financiers.
