Kendal Charitable Funds Accepting Applications for Promising Innovations

As a system of nonprofit communities, programs, and services founded on the principles of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Kendal Charitable Funds aspires to transform the experience of aging. Kendal affiliates work together within the Kendal System and with caring people outside of it to transform our culture’s view of aging and of older persons, stressing the potential for fulfillment and continuing contribution during the later stages of life.

Through its Promising Innovations program, Kendal will award grants of up to $25,000 in support of pilot programs that aim to transform the experience of aging. The program supports ideas that can enhance the lives of an aging population through services, research, and/or increased awareness of aging-related issues and opportunities. Priority will be given to projects that have the greatest potential for change and replication, for the greatest number of individuals.

Proposals must identify and address the challenges faced by family, friends, and unpaid caregivers of older adults in ways that support and nurture primary caregivers, educate their support systems, and enhance the quality of life of the individuals in their care.

Organizations that are tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) or 7871 of the Internal Revenue Code are eligible to apply.

Letters of intent must be received no later than May 22, 2015. Upon review, selected organizations will be invited to submit full applications by August 10, 2015.
