Most of us are, or will one day be, providers and recipients of care. Paid and unpaid caregivers serve as the linchpins of the healthcare system.
Caregiving is a longstanding priority for GIA and many within our network. We provide numerous opportunities to collaborate and co-fund, as well as resources to help you explore the legislative, health, and funding landscape for caregiving in all its forms.
Family Caregiving Funders Community
The Family Caregiving Funders Community provides a forum for funders to work together to invest in programs, models of care, research, communication and awareness, training, education, and advocacy for caregivers of older people. Established in 2016 by GIA member The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Community now includes more than 40 funders, and two pooled funds.
National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers Action Guide for Philanthropy features actionable ideas for philanthropy to fuel efforts to recognize, assist, include, support, and engage family caregivers.
Changing the Care Conversation
Changing the Care Conversation is a national learning and action-oriented initiative to improve support for family caregivers of older adults and people with disabilities, especially those with low and moderate incomes and caregivers of color, through technical assistance and small grants to coalitions in 10 states.
The following GIA members are responsible for funding the initiative: Archstone Foundation, Bader Philanthropies, Health Foundation for Western and Central New York, Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, RRF Foundation for Aging, and St. David's Foundation. If you are a funder who would like to get involved, contact GIA staff at email@example.com.
