Grant Description
Grants of up to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and Tribal governments projects to enhance the lives of older adults. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for proposals addressing workforce shortages in the healthcare system, specifically the shortage of skilled workers in the fields of elderly care.

The purpose is to support improvements in serving older adults that are reflective of a pioneering spirit in the field of aging. The annually funded grant seeks ideas that can enhance the lives of an aging population through services and research. The goal is to develop new understandings and awareness of issues and opportunities in support of this initiative.

Kendal Charitable Funds is seeking proposals that address two or more of the identified immediate needs, through creative, innovative, and replicable strategies and/or programs in the senior living industry and/or related services field that:

  1. Retain members of the current workforce through positive work experiences
  2. Recruits and nurtures new members of the senior living workforce
  3. Builds future employment opportunities and career pathways
  4. Promotes positive images of employment opportunities and careers in senior living
