To establish a baseline of information, this past June 2011, the Council surveyed its members and non-members to determine their current “aging” awareness, activities and future programming ideas. This baseline survey was conducted as part of the Council's work on the EngAGEment Initiative, a national program led by Grantmakers in Aging (GIA) on philanthropy and aging issues. The overall goal of this two-year initiative is to build Connecticut Funders’ understanding, interest and momentum around aging issues.
