When most people hear “grants for seniors,” they immediately think of grants to start a new senior center or grants to improve activities in senior homes. Such grants abound, and there’s no doubt that offering varied activities in senior homes benefits residents. However, there are also many others ways to enhance the lives of seniors. Here are a few grant opportunities that benefit seniors in unique ways.

Help Seniors Learn: A New Definition for “Senior in College”
The Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation has provided over $2.6 million to colleges and universities that help women over 25 finish their Bachelor’s degrees. Any four-year college or university may apply for funding.  For information on the application process and deadlines, contact the foundation by phone (609-924-7022) or email (info@newcombefoundation.org).

Help Seniors Remember the Good Times
According to The Alzheimer's Association, “one in 10 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer's dementia.” Since 1982, the Alzheimer Association’s International Research Grant Program has provided $435 million dollars in grants to institutions whose research projects help the global community learn more about this disease and improve treatment and care options for afflicted individuals. The application guidelines and deadlines vary, so please visit the Association’s grant page to learn more about the research grants to which you’d like to apply.

With persistence, women have made great strides toward achieving equal opportunity, equal pay, and more, but there is still great need for improvement. Did you know 62 million girls worldwide are denied an education? Or that women with full-time jobs earn 77 cents for every dollar of their male counterpart’s earnings? Less than 30 percent of researchers are women, and by 2020 men will outnumber women in the field of computer science by 4:1 (statistics from makers.com).

As pointed out in our previous two-part blog, “Trends and Projections for U.S. Federal Government Grant Funding,” the availability of federal grant money is waning. Organizations that have once relied heavily on federal grant funding for their programs will likely need to look for other funding opportunities. Those opportunities could be from the hundreds of grant-giving corporations across the country. Corporations such as Bank of America and Walmart do more than provide banking services and discount products. These corporations, and hundreds of others like them, work to make a difference in their communities by providing grants to non-profit organizations in a variety of subject areas. Below we will detail a few of the grant-making corporations as well as their funding areas and any specific grant opportunities. There are countless other corporations looking for exceptional programs to fund so why not let us help you find several good matches for you?
