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.
We collaborate with grantee and partner organizations to identify evidence-based interventions that make transformational impact possible and address our strategic objectives.
AARP Foundation Experience Corps (EC) is seeking to grow into additional afterschool sites within the existing network using the sustained tutoring strategy. The goal of this funding opportunity is to increase the number of EC students receiving sustained tutoring (one-on-one and/or small group) in afterschool settings using a structured session approach with leveled reading content, such as Reading A to Z. Through the work of the awardees, we aim to serve 3,500 additional students in afterschool settings by the end of SY 2018-19. This grant opportunity is for existing Experience Corps sites only.
