More NextFifty Initiative grants to help aging Coloradans

Our founding attorney Marco Chayet serves on the board of directors of an important Denver nonprofit dedicated to the well-being of Colorado elders. In a previous post, we told you about the NextFifty Initiative, also called NFI, an organization dedicated to funding a variety of initiatives to improve the lives of Colorado seniors, defined as the second 50 years of life. 

Mr. Chayet is uniquely qualified to serve in this capacity, being one of the premier elder law attorneys in the state.

Specifically, NFI aims to fund "solutions that promote healthier, happier lives for generations to come," considering itself "an engine for innovation that transforms aging." 

2018 grant recipients 

This summer, NextFifty announced its second group of grant recipients, which it calls partners in "positively changing the landscape of aging." If you follow the link, you can read about each grantee in detail, including their missions and Colorado counties served. The nature and focus of some of the grantee projects and services for seniors include: 

  • Home modification and repair
  • Nutrition
  • Physical, emotional and mental health
  • Health care access
  • Dental care
  • Access to benefits
  • Theatre about Alzheimer's
  • Creative housing
  • Latino aging
  • Information, education and support
  • Support for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers
  • LGBTQ elders
  • Exercise
  • Senior volunteering
  • Employment
  • Home services
  • Advanced illness and hospice services
  • Financial decision-making support
  • And more 

Out Boulder County 

Times Call published an article about one important recipient: Out Boulder County, which received a $25,000 NFI grant for programming to support LGBTQ people 50 and older. The organization will develop its programming focus with community input. Specifically, four focus groups this fall and winter will identify what programming needs the grants should meet in Weld or Boulder counties. 

They will focus on three groups: "late career, retired and elder." The executive director noted in the article that needs change greatly between 50 years old and 80 years old. 

She continued that she hopes to offer "intergenerational conversations," noting the different experiences of younger and older LGBTQ people. Noting that trauma remains from the early years of the AIDS epidemic, she said that some gay men still consider retirement planning a "whole new idea."   

Mr. Chayet and our entire law firm look forward to learning about the creative solutions Out Boulder County and the other grant recipients will offer to enhance the lives of Colorado seniors.
