Kendal Charitable Funds Accepting Applications for 2014-2015 Promising Innovations Grant

As a network 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 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 developing new understanding and awareness of issues and opportunities. Priority will be given to projects that have the greatest potential for change and replication for the greatest number of individuals. The proposed project must address one or more non-institutionalized populations, and be designed to foster a spirit of intergenerational inclusion and shared learning.

Organizations with 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 15, 2015. Upon review, selected organizations will be invited to submit full applications, which are due August 1, 2014.
