The Eisner Foundation in Beverley Hills, California, has announced ten grants totaling nearly $1.9 million to help advance intergenerational efforts in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
The fourth-quarter awards include a grant of $200,000 over two years to House of Ruth to strengthen the organization's infrastructure so it can better serve victims of domestic violence in Los Angeles and San Bernadino counties; $450,000 over three years to the Heart of Los Angeles, which will use the funds to launch an Intergenerational Orchestra Program; $300,000 over two years to EngAGE in support of intergenerational arts education and mentoring collaborations involving affordable senior housing residents and schools in Southern California; $162,305 to KCRW in support of a live Aging in America event series focused on creating intergenerational dialogue around key issues related to aging; and $50,000 to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to strengthen its efforts to catalyze intergenerational engagement across the region.
"We're pleased to continue several longstanding partnerships with this quarter's grant awards, but even prouder to support new organizations with impressive intergenerational programs," said Eisner Foundation CEO Trent Stamp. "This is a heartening reflection of the growing number and quality of intergenerational efforts in our region."
