Florida Philanthropic Network

EngAGEment Initiative

FPN's EngAGEment Initiative

In 2011, Florida Philanthropic Network launched a two-year project, through a grant from Grantmakers in Aging's EngAGEment Initiative, to raise awareness of aging issues and educate grantmakers about opportunities for funding in the field of aging in Florida. Funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies, the EngAGEment Initiative partners GIA with regional associations of grantmakers like FPN and other national organizations to introduce grantmakers to the many needs of our aging population. Aging issues are particularly critical in Florida, which has the highest percentage and second-highest number of residents age 60 and older of all states in the country.

FPN's two-year, $30,000 grant for the EngAGEment Initiative is being matched one-for-one with funding from the following Florida grantmakers: Allegany Franciscan Ministries, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Foundation, Health Foundation of South Florida, Quantum Foundation and Winter Park Health Foundation.
