Grantmaking at AARP Foundation supports sustainable, real-world solutions to the fundamental challenges facing low-income older adults. We collaborate with grantee and partner organizations to identify evidence-based projects that transform lives and communities — projects that we know can be expanded nationwide. Through grants, the Foundation enables grantees to help more people, work more efficiently, bring proven new approaches to scale, and make resources go further.
For more than three decades AARP Foundation has offered reliable support for low-income adults age 50 and over.
We support grantees in refining their program by providing robust technical assistance and grantee resources.
