Seeding Vitality Arts U.S.




One of the goals of the Seeding Vitality Arts initiative is to build the artful aging movement nationally. We are doing this in part by supporting our grantees in getting the word out about their artful aging programs. We are proud of the interest the press has already shown in their work.

Inaugural Cohort

Chosen from a highly competitive field of more than 200 applicants, these 15 organizations form the first cohort of grantees to partner with Aroha Philanthropies to support the development and expansion of artful aging programs.

We believe that the Seeding Vitality Arts initiative will demonstrate the potential impact of such programs for older adults, arts organizations, senior service providers, senior residential communities, and diverse groups everywhere.
