Our purpose is to support improvements in serving older adults. Promising Innovation grants take their place in a field that is expanding rapidly to meet the needs of a burgeoning population of elders where seed money can nurture an idea to make a measurable difference. These grants are made possible through Kendal Charitable Funds, established in 1989 to raise and disburse monies in support of the charitable purposes of The Kendal Corporation and its affiliates, including many outreach efforts. As a system of not-for-profit communities, programs and services founded on the principles of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Kendal aspires to transform the experience of aging, guided by Kendal’s Values and Practices. Kendal affiliates work together within the Kendal System and with caring people outside of it to transform our culture’s view of aging and of older persons, stressing the potential for fulfillment and continuing contribution during the later stages of life.
