Innovative thinking does not only happen in the Bay Area tech industry it also happens in philanthropy, both public and private. An example is the law that passed in San Francisco in 2016 that designates annual funding (the ‘Dignity Fund’) for essential community-based services and supports for San Francisco seniors and adults with disabilities. It is a first-in-the-nation law.
Even though this law is an immense achievement, much more is needed. This forum will explore the potential role and impact of private funders in cultivating innovative programs, thinking and solutions that support the diverse Bay Area population in growing old with dignity.
Glen Galaich, CEO of the Stupski Foundation, and Shirin Vakharia, Director for Health & Aging, Marin Community Foundation, will present and discuss the impact their foundations want to make in the field of aging. They will explore new ways of thinking about design and delivery of services, and what they perceive as some of the biggest challenges and opportunities unique to the Bay Area.
The Stupski Foundation recently introduced transforming end of life care as one their funding priorities. The Marin Community Foundation is California’s second largest community foundation and funds programs such as Whistlestop, which provides an amazing mix of services through their Active Aging Center in San Rafael.
