Background Statement

Why Give to AgeWise Colorado?

AgeWise Colorado launched its website and began providing statewide educational resources and vetted service provider listings in July 2021. Our core information and referral programming has been operating for over 2 years.

In that short time, we have made tremendous progress in developing our website content, service provider directory, educational webinars, community partnerships, outreach channels, and organizational capacity as an essential free resource for Colorado's aging population and their adult children who are, or may well become, caregivers of older family members.

We now assist thousands of older adults and caregivers each month with the information and reliable service provider connections to age well. But we know there are many more people we have yet to reach, especially in rural and underserved areas and more localized service providers to add.

While still a young organization, our initial traction and growth in delivering value to older Coloradans and their adult children has exceeded expectations. We are eager to leverage our statewide platform to drive deeper impact in alignment with this funder's strategic priorities through this time-sensitive funding opportunity.

If you, the reader, feel this is a valuable service, please support us with your contribution.
