Grantmaking is a creative process. Funders in aging (and in other fields) must use a highly tuned sense of strategic imagination to partner with astute risk-takers and advance bold approaches to complex challenges. It is this creativity that helps us find new ways forward around issues as diverse as caregiving and transportation access, social isolation and health equity, the opioid epidemic and age-friendly community development.
In 2019, the GIA Annual Conference will celebrate the can-do spirit and creativity that fuels successful grantmaking, that takes us beyond the boundaries of what we know today. We’ll bring together renowned national experts and local advocates to share their insights and hard-won lessons learned. And what better place to celebrate creativity and the difference that grantmaking can make than New York City—a magnet for inventive people, audacious ideas, and innovation from around the globe? Please join us and be a part of this unique gathering of leaders and colleagues that will inspire all of us to build a nation that is better for people and of all ages.
