The Age Strong™ Initiative
A Private-Philanthropic Partnership Helping Grantmakers Increase Impact
A "Conversations with GIA" webinar
This webinar addressed the search by local and regional funders for ways to increase their impact through partnerships. Often these partnerships are limited in their scope and capacity. To overcome some of these hurdles, several major organizations have come together to create a new initiative – Age Strong – to serve low-income older persons. The Age Strong initiative from AARP, AARP Foundation, Calvert Foundation, and Capital Impact Partners addresses housing, hunger, isolation, and income among low-income older people in the U.S. Presenters: Justin Conway, Vice President of Investment Partnerships, Calvert Foundation; Dan Soliman, Lead, Impact Programs, AARP Foundation; Tanya Rakpraja, Director of Strategic Lending Initiatives Capital Impact Partners. John Feather, CEO, Grantmakers in Aging (GIA). A special thanks to our sponsor, The John A. Hartford Foundation, and to our co-sponsors, AARP Foundation, Calvert Foundation, and Capital Impact Partners. Webinar date: March 30, 2016. View it at https://youtu.be/yt9gtuFldS0.
