When faced with how to best to respond to the needs of older adults in a disaster, funders need to combine their knowledge of all three components of this work: knowledge about philanthropy, older adults, and disasters. Please join Grantmakers in Aging (GIA) for a panel discussion with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, The Patterson Foundation and the Florida Philanthropic Network.

Panelists will present facts and statistics on the effects of the hurricane season on older adults, how to best allocate the resources you have as a funder to benefit older adults and what the philanthropic community is doing to support the needs of older adults.
