NextFifty Initiative Invites Applications for Flexible Support Grant Program

NextFifty Initiative is a Colorado-based private foundation dedicated to funding mission-driven initiatives that improve the lives of older adult populations and their caregivers.

To that end, the organization is accepting applications for its Flexible Support Grant program, which will award grants in support of activities that improve the lives and capacities of adults age 50 and older and/or their caregivers, including the aging-disabled population.

Flexible Support grants are restricted to organizations or programs that serve (or seek to serve) older adults, but the use of funds is flexible, and applicants will be asked about their organization’s and/or program’s goals and how the funding will support achieving those goals, instead of being asked to articulate a specific project plan and budget. The organization is required to direct at least 80 percent of its funding to benefit the people of Colorado; however, entities outside of Colorado may apply for Flexible Support grants.

Eligible applicants include nonprofit entities organized under sections 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and 501(c)(6) of the IRS code in good standing with the state or jurisdiction in which the organization resides. In addition, governmental entities are also eligible for funding. Organizations may apply through a fiscal sponsor.

Before submitting a request, applicants are encouraged to speak with a staff member. For requests of $250,000 or more, a call is required. To schedule, email info@next50initiative.org, or call 303-547-1800 by July 2, 2021.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the NextFifty Initiative website.

Deadline: July 16, 2021
