The Retirement Research Foundation Is Accepting Applications for Projects in Aging

The Retirement Research Foundation’s (RRF) next proposal application deadline is August 1, 2017. The Retirement Research Foundation is based in Chicago and is one of the nation’s first private foundations devoted exclusively to aging and retirement issues. Throughout its history, RRF has awarded more than $200 million for innovative projects that benefit older Americans. Through its responsive grants program, RRF supports:

  • advocacy;

  • direct service;
  • education and training programs for professionals working with elders; and
  • research to seek causes and solutions to significant problems of older adults.

Proposals for direct service projects are considered from organizations based in seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, or Florida. Advocacy, training, and research projects, all with national relevance, are considered from organizations located anywhere in the U.S. RRF offers an opportunity for applicants to submit a brief (1 – 2 pages) Letter of Inquiry (LOI) as part of our grantmaking process. Information about the optional LOI process can be found on RRF’s website. LOIs should be submitted by June 15th.
