Grantmakers In Aging (GIA) is the nation’s leading membership organization founded by and for funders serving older adults. It was originally established in 1982 as an informal network of foundation staff  interested in aging issues, to promote the exchange of knowledge and program ideas.

For more than 30 years, GIA has been a collegial place for our members to learn, share knowledge and best practices, build program partnerships, grow professionally, and have an even greater impact on an aging society.
