Grantmakers In Aging is an inclusive and responsive membership organization that is a national catalyst for philanthropy, with a common dedication to improving the experience of aging. 

GIA members have a shared recognition that a society that is better for older adults is better for people of all ages.

Grantmakers In Aging provides its members with a personal connection to key people, high-quality resources, and state-of-the art ideas about aging and all issues related to aging. Dedicated to promoting and strengthening grantmaking for an aging society, GIA is the only international professional organization of grantmakers active in the field.

GIA is now entering a new and exciting phase of its work: GIA 2.0.  With new staff leadership and a new strategic business plan, GIA is focused on a future in which one in five Americans will be over the age of 65. The audacious goal of GIA 2.0 is to seek a dramatic increase in the percentage of philanthropy going to aging by the year 2019.

GIA does not award grants. Grantseekers may refer to this presentation by CEO John Feather, PhD, with advice and suggestions for finding grant opportunities and shaping applications effectively. 


Help us pursue our mission and strengthen grantmaking to support the needs and potential of older people.
