Grantmakers In Aging 2014 Annual Conference

Grantmakers In Aging (GIA) gathered in October for its 2014 Annual Conference in San Francisco, California. With its pioneering spirit, visionary thinking and diverse culture, the city by the Bay proved an ideal host to reflect upon and refresh our approach to philanthropy in aging.

The theme of the 2014 conference, Greater Expectations: A New Vision for Aging Philanthropy, brought together experts and stakeholders with innovative approaches to delivering on this agenda.

With more than 40 million people age 65+ living in the US— the most in our nation’s history, modern philanthropy faces increased challenges. The conference offered 18 sessions that addressed a wide range of issues related to our approach in providing older adults—especially those with low incomes—with access to health care, social services, housing, transportation, safe environments, and nutrition.
