Jean Griswold Foundation Accepting Applications for Respite and Short-Term Home Care Programs

The Jean Griswold Foundation provides grants to select nonprofit organizations to build, strengthen, and sustain programs that enhance the quality of life for low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who choose to age in place.

To that end, one-year grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded to support programs that provide respite care and short-term home care. The foundation also will consider funding local community and grassroots organizations that provide other programs and services with the intent of helping those of limited financial means to age in place. Higher amounts may be awarded when a program is an exceptional fit with Foundation’s mission or giving priorities.

To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit organizations that are defined as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The foundation does not consider requests for support of individuals or contributions to endowments, capital campaigns, conference costs, or technology and equipment.

The foundation will begin accepting applications on September 12, 2018.
