Foundation supporting aging seeks board members

NextFifty Initiative, formerly known as the InnovAge Foundation, is actively seeking its first CEO and four additional qualified board members to serve the aging population in Colorado.

NextFifty Initiative is a new Colorado grant-making foundation dedicated to funding mission-driven initiatives that improve community services for the elderly population and caregivers. Grant making will begin sometime in 2017.

Foundation leaders are seeking four qualified community members to join the board. NextFifty Initiative is looking for the following board members:

1. Someone to represent the community at-large.

2. Someone who is involved or represents the frail elderly community, defined as individuals 55 or older.

3. Someone who is involved or represents the frail elderly with disabilities community.

4. Someone who is enrolled in the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), or who had an immediate family member in the program within the past two years.

Community members who meet these requirements and are interested in applying to serve on the board may visit the “Join Us” tab on http://www.next50initiative.org for more information. Current board members will begin reviewing board applications on June 27 and will continue until all positions are filled.

The new foundation is the result of the conversion of InnovAge to a for-profit entity and is the recipient of net proceeds of $196 million from the sale. As part of the conversion, former InnovAge and InnovAge Foundation board members transitioned to the NextFifty Initiative board.
