Less than 1% of major philanthropic funding goes to services and causes that benefit our aging population. Intergenerational programs receive even less.
By thinking creatively about how to fund and support community programs and resources that benefit youth, older adults, and communities, we can change that together. LinkAGES Connects is strengthening our field by helping organizations collaborate, build capacity, and facilitate in-person and virtual intergenerational programs.
Make a difference
Older adults, children, and young people are experiencing unprecedented loneliness and social isolation. This can impact their mental health and physical health for the rest of their lives. It also hurts our communities and the fabric of society, according to the US Surgeon General's 2023 Advisory.
Intergenerational connections, when designed and facilitated well, help people feel seen and valued. They decrease ageism and counter discrimination. They create communities of belonging and mutual respect.
Invest in a better world for everyone by supporting LinkAGES.
