AARP Foundation Grants Program

What We Fund

AARP Foundation does not provide grants to individuals, for-profit corporations and their nonprofit affiliates or retailers.

We fund a diverse range of promising projects that help create long-term, sustainable solutions to the problems faced by low-income adults age 50 and older. These projects may range from basic education to interventions spearheaded by organizations that address the social and behavioral aspects of these problems on older Americans. 

We do not provide grants to individuals, for-profit corporations and their nonprofit affiliates or retailers (although organizations such as these may be identified as sponsors and can contribute funds toward a match requirement).
