AARP Foundation’s grantmaking focuses on supporting and advancing effective solutions to help vulnerable older adults transform their lives today and secure the essentials for their future. We’re working side by side with other organizations to reach more people, work more efficiently and make resources go further. We seek to support organizations whose evidence-based interventions can make a direct impact on the low-income 50+ and also align with our strategic priorities. 

Our grants support lasting solutions to the fundamental challenges that low-income older adults face: the need for functional and affordable housing, adequate and nutritious food, steady income, and strong and sustaining social bonds.

Grantee Profiles

We collaborate with grantee and partner organizations to identify evidence-based interventions that make transformational impact possible and address our strategic objectives.
