Your donation fuels the movement to connect older and younger generations by helping us:

  • Change the story from one of generational division and strife to one built around intergenerational connection and collaboration.
  • Support innovators of all ages with ambitious initiatives to bridge generational divides and solve problems from literacy to loneliness.
  • Leverage leaders in the nonprofit, for-profit and public sectors who can endorse, replicate, and invest in intergenerational solutions.
