Grant Awards Reception and Workshop

Each year Thanks Mom & Dad Fund awards grants to organizations serving older adults. These grants fill growing gaps in services for seniors. However, funding is not the only way Thanks Mom & Dad Fund works to strengthen the aging network. Along with the Grant Award Reception all grantees and potential grantees are invited to attend a skill building workshop. In the past these workshops have included grant writing, reporting and outcome measurement, and other workshops to help build the capacity of staff working to serve older adults.

2019 Grant Awards Reception & Workshop

At the annual Grant Awards Reception in February, the 2018-19 grantees were announced after a dynamic workshop presented on reporting outcomes. Our commitment to organizations is to provide not only funding but other resources and opportunities to strengthen the network of agencies serving older adults.

This year the workshop was presented by Kristi Fuller with the Georgia Health Policy Center. Attendees learned more about reporting outcomes and telling their story.

With the support of our generous sponsors and donors Thanks Mom & Dad Fund distributed 64 grants! Working together we are able to help fill in the funding gaps for services on which older adults and caregivers rely. Read the full press release and announcement here.
