Pooled Funds

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. GIA serves as the fiscal agent for the initiative, which is funded by 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. 

The Care for All with Respect and Equity (CARE) Fund strives to bolster paid leave, quality jobs for care workers, and access to long-term services and supports. It is supported by 11 funders, including Ford Foundation and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, investing $50 million over 5 years.
