A Huge Thanks to Our Supporters

Dear Friend of Generations United:

Thank you....Just two small words, but they can never be said enough.

Thank you...for your continuing support, for caring about all generations and for believing in us. Your generosity has enabled us to remain a vital force in connecting generations. Because of you, our small staff moved mountains this year-and provided the guidance and resources the intergenerational field needs to strengthen and grow. Here are some of our highlights:

  • Holding a national convening of leaders, caregivers and  youth to discuss, coordinate and prioritize plans for grandfamilies.
  • Donna named for the second year in a row to the NonProfit Times Top 50 Power and Influence.
  • Participating in Pfizer GetOld, a partnership launched in Time Square in June designed to encourage people to be the best they can at every age.     
  • Receiving an invitation to present at the United Nations during the International Day of the Family Celebration. 


Thank You...for believing in us-and for considering a contribution to our Friends of All Generations Fund. Your support means we can continue to be an effective instrument for change. You can easily and safely make a donation.   


I hope we can count on your continued support. Together, we can build a world that values all generations.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's special Generations This Week recap of Tuesday's Signature Report event.
