Grant Program to Support Nonprofits’ Senior-Focused Outreach Amid COVID-19 Crisis

The Jean Griswold Foundation, a nonprofit named for the founder of Griswold Home Care, has activated its annual Griswold Gives grant program early to assist local nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s program will be renamed the Griswold Gives COVID-19 Emergency Relief Program in light of the ongoing crisis.

The Griswold Gives COVID-19 Emergency Relief Program will help support senior-focused nonprofits in all of Griswold Home Care’s markets, including food banks, meal delivery programs and senior centers. The Jean Griswold Foundation updated this year’s Griswold Gives grant program in response to many local nonprofits struggling with a lack of funding, resources and volunteers due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Griswold Gives grant program was launched in 2019 as part of the Jean Griswold Foundation’s work to support seniors and disabled adults in need across the U.S. Through the program, Griswold Home Care’s franchise directors have awarded 101 grants to local nonprofits of their choice.

“During these uncertain times, many local nonprofits don’t have the resources to assist the growing number of people in need – especially seniors,” said Michael Slupecki, CEO of Griswold Home Care. “Through the Griswold Gives COVID-19 Emergency Relief Program, we aim to support these organizations and help people continue to live healthy lives in the place they love: their homes.”

The Jean Griswold Foundation is a private charity established by Griswold Home Care to further the company’s belief that care for the elderly and disabled should be available to all. Every dollar donated is used to further its mission to support programs and services that allow seniors to age in place. The Jean Griswold Foundation has also partnered with organizations, such as Meals on Wheels America, to help seniors and disabled adults in need.
