GIVE65, a program of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation, is the first and only crowd-fundraising platform exclusively devoted to helping nonprofits raise money online for programs and services that create hope for seniors.
It can be challenging to raise funds for programs and services that help seniors in need. In the nonprofit world, seniors are often overlooked and nonprofits are underfunded. At Home Instead Senior Care Foundation, we believe we can inspire greater charitable giving in support of seniors when we work together with nonprofits who share this common mission. By working together, we can increase social awareness and the capacity of nonprofit organizations to care for the growing senior population - ultimately helping even more seniors in need.
The need is great. I think GIVE65 is a rallying cry for all of us - the public and private sectors - to come together and create hope for our seniors in need.
-Lori Hogan, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation Vice President
