Request a Grant Writer

Awards to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, individual grantmakers, and foundations to recognize excellence in working effectively with diverse elderly populations. The purpose of this program is to acknowledge organizations that are committed to inclusion, equity, and diversity.

Diversity Award was established to recognize national, regional, and local individuals, programs, and organizations that embrace diversity as a fundamental element in all levels of their work in aging. More recently, the Diversity Committee has expanded its criteria, seeking to identify organizations that go beyond diversity to demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion as well. GIA and the committee share a belief that diversity is a critical element of strong grantmaking in aging. A commitment to inclusion and equity means ensuring diverse individuals with lived experience are valued in decision making and organizational or systemic changes are pursued to ensure the unique challenges experienced by diverse populations are addressed.

The GIA Diversity Award Committee embraces the following definitions provided by the D5 Coalition, a five-year effort to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in philanthropy.  For more information see: http://www.d5coalition.org/about/dei/

Diversity encompasses the demographic mix of a specific collection of people, taking into account elements of human difference, but focusing particularly on:

  • Racial and ethnic groups: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Hispanics/Latinos/Latinas, African Americans and blacks, and American Indians and Alaska Natives
  • LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) populations
  • People with disabilities (physical/mental)
  • Women

Equity is promoting justice, impartiality, and fairness within the procedures and processes of institutions or systems, as well as the distribution of resources.

Inclusion is ensuring diverse individuals are able to participate fully in the decision-making processes of an organization.
