Retirement Research Foundation - General Grants Program
DUE: MAY 1 AUG 1 FEB 1
The Retirement Research Foundation, based in Chicago, was established in the 1950s and endowed in
1978 by the late John D. MacArthur. The Foundation is devoted solely to serving the needs of older persons
in the U.S. and enhancing their quality of life. Since 1979, RRF has invested more than $185 million
in continuing efforts to improve life for older persons. In 2008 the Foundation, reflecting changes in philanthropy
and gerontology, restated its mission. The Foundation now is especially committed to improving
conditions for those who are vulnerable due to frailty associated with advanced age, those who are
economically disadvantaged and at greatest risk of falling through the safety net, and those who experience
disparities related to race and ethnicity. The Foundation supports a range of programs and special
initiatives designed to: (a) Improve access to and quality of community based and residential health and
long term care; (b) Promote economic security for all older adults by strengthening social insurance, pension,
and personal savings programs; and (c) Support adequate training of, and compensation for, those
already working directly with older persons and their families to bring higher quality of care to larger
numbers of older adults. Requests for support of projects focusing on advocacy, research, or education
and training will be considered from anywhere in the United States.
