Building Philanthropy for a Better Florida

Grantmakers in Aging Annual Conference

August 22, 2018

Dear Florida Grantmakers:

Grantmakers in Aging (GIA), one of the nation’s leading philanthropic organizations, will hold its Annual Conference, October 17-19, 2018 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.  We hope you will join us!

“Wiser About Older: New Insights, New Programs for an Aging America” will bring together more approximately 250 regional and national foundation executives, program officers, trustees, as well as thought leaders from around the country.  A rich variety of sessions will challenge all of us to reimagine our communities to truly care for people across the lifespan and take full advantage of the unique contributions older adults make each day.

PLEASE NOTE: the GIA Annual Conference is only open to staff and trustees of foundations, corporate giving programs, social venture capital groups, and individual philanthropists. This allows the GIA conference to be a "solicitation free zone," so attendees can fully engage in the meeting.

Eligible? Interested? Please register here.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Maria Gonzales Jackson at GIA (Email:, Tel. 703.413.0413 x. 102).

Or reach out to me!! I’m Program Committee Co-Chair, Host Committee Chair, and a GIA Board member and I’d love to tell you more about what we have in store for attendees in the Mid-South this year! (Email:, Tel. 901.521.2779 ext. 306). We’ve got great site visits lined up, a fun reception at the Rock N’ Soul museum, a volunteer activity, though-provoking plenaries, and rumor has it a duck march may be involved!

BTW- check out our rural aging work while you’re on the site:  We’ve got some great pieces on the Opioid epidemic and new resources on transportation.

We look forward to seeing you this Fall…. (Come on—A duck march!)
