Record number of grants funded in 2017!

Over the summer, the Thanks Mom & Dad Fund® began a new partnership with the Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services. Through a request for proposals and application reviews, 50 senior centers across the state of Georgia were
Using technology to connect with family
selected to be funded for innovation programming and services. From art therapy to outdoor exercise programs, Georgia's seniors will have new opportunities to learn, create and stay active.

Thanks Mom & Dad Fund® Trustees also made annual grant awards on a competitive basis to support programs and services for seniors in Georgia. Your generosity throughout the year makes these grants possible.

This year marks our largest for providing grant funding: $125,000 to support activities and  services for seniors across Georgia. The new partnership and your donations will directly impact and improve the lives of seniors in our state. In the new year, we look forward to sharing success stories from the grantees. Thank you for making seniors a priority!
