Decision makers in public policy and private philanthropy are increasingly recognizing that family caregivers need an array of supports if they are to maintain their critical role in the provision of long-term care.
The purpose of this study is to increase understanding about foundation activity, interest and philanthropic trends in the area of family caregiving. The study builds on the 1999 survey undertaken by the Grotta Foundation to examine grantmaking support for family elder caregiving (Gutheil & Chernesky, 1999). This current report presents results of a 2002 grantmaker survey and interviews with selected foundation leaders that highlight:
- Access to and use of information on family caregiving
- Awareness of the NFCSP
- Current grantmaking focus on caregiving
- Future interest in funding caregiving initiatives
