GIVE65 is a program of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation.
A study by the Foundation Center reports just two percent of funding from the nation's largest grant makers is specifically focused on seniors - even though the senior population will double in just 15 years. Furthermore, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that one in seven seniors is living in poverty based on the supplemental poverty measure. Every day 10,000 people are turning 65 years old in the U.S., there is a tremendous need to increase the capacity of nonprofit programs and services that create hope for seniors.
In 2016, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation established GIVE65 to inspire greater charitable giving in support of nonprofit organizations that serve low-income, vulnerable seniors. The 2016 Event was a huge success with more than $270,000 distributed to senior-focused nonprofits throughout the United States. Home Instead Senior Care Foundation is proud to present GIVE65, in collaboration with generous sponsors sharing our mission, to help seniors in need.
Since its founding in 2003, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation has been helping less fortunate and vulnerable aging adults. To date, the Foundation has awarded nearly $2.3 million to nonprofit organizations serving seniors in the United States and Canada. The mission of the Foundation is to enhance the lives of aging adults and those who care for them.
Paul and I started the Foundation to help those seniors who could not afford the services of the Home Instead Senior Care network. Over the years, we have had the great honor to learn about many nonprofit programs throughout North America that are providing services essential to quality of life. The need is great. I think GIVE65 is a rallying cry for all of us - the public and private sector - to come together and create hope for our seniors in need."
