For Encore Organizations

About Encore
Experienced adults are a growing but largely untapped resource for addressing community issues. That’s the premise behind an emerging national movement to engage adults in the boomers and beyond age group in purposeful volunteer or paid work.

Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s Encore is leading the call to engage experienced adults as a vital force for community change. The Volunteer Center at Heart of West Michigan United Way is proud to partner with these efforts.

Organizations obtain Encore status by going through the Coming of Age ® Learning Lab, offered by the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University. Click here to learn more.
