More About the Innovations Fund
We are pleased to announce the 2nd-round recipients of grants from our Innovations Fund. The grants were given to projects that focused on the importance of bringing housing and services together to allow lower-income elderly to safely age in place.
Innovation and transformation of the field, however, will require support that transcends annual budget temporalities. We ask you to consider a donation to the fund.
An affiliate of NewCourtland, a leading, non-profit provider of community services, housing, a nursing home, education and workforce development and LeadingAge member headquartered in Philadelphia, The NewCourtland Foundation supports not-for-profit organizations that have a stated mission of providing housing and/or programming to low-income seniors. The Foundation’s commitment will also extend to train and educate personnel who work, or wish someday to work, in support of those seniors. At the present time, funding activities of the NewCourtland Foundation are restricted to the joint venture with LeadingAge. The NewCourtland Foundation will work jointly with LeadingAge to administer the grants, which will be awarded in increments of up to $25,000.
LeadingAge and EMA hosted a Great Minds Gala fundraising event to recognize LeadingAge members and individuals who had exhibited extraordinary leadership in the quest to improve lives of those touched by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The gala will be held again in 2015.
