Grant Description
Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations and government agencies for projects that improve the quality of life of aging adults and those who care for them. Funding is intended for programs and activities that benefit underserved aging populations, such as minorities, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable populations over the age of 50. The goal of the grant program is to help organizations achieve their goals and improve their work toward enhancing the lives of older adults.

Flexible Support Funding is designed to help Colorado organizations make progress toward their goal of improving the lives of older adults while also helping to increase or sustain an organization’s capacity to serve older adults. Flexible Support embraces a trust-based approach with a simple application, lower barrier of entry, minimal reporting, and opportunities for relationship-building.

Flexible Support Grants are restricted to organizations or programs that currently serve older adults and are addressing healthy aging, access to care and support, ageism, racism, systemic inequities, and improving the lives of older adults. Instead of being asked to articulate a specific project plan and budget, Flexible Support Grant applicants will be asked about their organization’s and/or program’s goals, how the funding will support the achievement of those goals, and the organization’s need for these funds.

NextFifty will consider requests for:

  • Programs aiming to better the lives of older adults
  • Funding existing programs/services
  • Increasing an organization’s capacity to serve older adults

Requests are strengthened by:

  • A focus on a historically marginalized community or communities


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Grants will be made to nonprofit entities organized under sections 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and 501(c)(6) of the IRS code that are in good standing with the state or jurisdiction in which the organization resides. Governmental entities are also eligible for funding.

NextFifty Initiative will allow organizations to submit an application through a fiscal sponsor.
