The Archstone Foundation
The Foundationís mission is to contribute towards preparing society to meet the needs of an aging population. The Foundationís funding priorities are fall prevention, elder abuse and neglect, end-of-life issues, and responsive grantmaking. Under responsive grantmaking, the Foundation will consider projects that provide access to care, adult day services, caregiver support, disability services, healthy aging, housing, medication management, mental health/substance abuse, professional education and training, transportation, and promoting aging in place. The Foundation accepts unsolicited letters of inquiry through its responsive grantmaking strategy and on occasion will release a competitive RFP within its targeted initiative areas. Priority is given to proposals serving the Southern California region, but the Foundation will consider those from outside of the area if they serve the state as a whole, are demonstration projects with potential for replication in California, or have a regional or national impact. The Foundation will also consider projects that have the potential to improve practice in the field. The Foundation accepts unsolicited funding inquiries on an on-going basis. Initial contact should be in the form of a letter of inquiry, no more than three pages in length. Additional information including requirements for the letter of inquiry can be found on the Web site.
