Montclair Institute for Lifelong Learning Expands Through Generous Matching Grant


MONTCLAIR, NJ - Opportunities for lifelong learning in Montclair are expanding, thanks to the generosity of the community and the Partners for Health Foundation, organizers announce.

The Montclair Institute for Lifelong Learning (MILL) raised more than $50,000 through donations from local residents during its Back to School Again campaign, with the Partners for Health Foundation matching each contribution.

“MILL classes are very popular and the demand for classes quickly outpaced the supply,” said Katie York, Director of Senior Services/Lifelong Montclair. “In response to growing waiting lists and classes that had to turn away interested students, the MILL partners launched this collaborative fundraising campaign in fall of 2016.”

“The Foundation is pleased to provide these matching funds, and will continue to provide a dollar for dollar match of all donations to support the MILL in 2017,” said Pam Scott, Executive Director of Partners for Health Foundation.

The MILL brings in-depth, high-level learning opportunities to adults aged 55 and over. The program is a collaborative effort of the Montclair Public Library and its Adult School of Montclair department, the Montclair Art Museum, the Montclair History Center and Montclair State University.

Since March of 2015, more than 60 classes have been offered in areas that include the arts, health and wellness, and history and current events.  The MILL is an initiative of Lifelong Montclair, the Township of Montclair’s aging in place program, and is funded by the Partners for Health Foundation.

All MILL classes are free of charge, but registration is required through the Adult School Department of the Montclair Public Library.  To learn more, visit
