Our Programs


One in seven older adults is living in poverty. To maintain their quality of life, many rely on the nonprofit sector for basic needs like meals, transportation, housing, activities and so much more. GIVE65, the signature program of the Home Instead Foundation, is an online giving platform committed to honoring all aging adults and their aging journey by partnering with nonprofit organizations to inspire greater charitable giving in support of the older population.

Through the GIVE65 Event, a 65-hour online giving event held in July, nonprofits can rally their communities to raise funds, recruit volunteers and increase awareness for their programs and services that are giving aging adults hope! The Foundation’s GIVE65 Incentive Fund provides matching and financial awards to incentivize giving. Visit GIVE65.org to learn more!

Be a Santa to a Senior

The Be a Santa to a Senior program was established in 2003 with the intent to spread holiday cheer to isolated aging adults who might not otherwise receive a gift or a visit from a family member during the holidays. Since then, hundreds of thousands of aging adults have benefited from a wrapped gift or a friendly visit during a season that can feel lonely. The Foundation is able to accept monetary gifts via cash or credit card in support of community-based Be a Santa to a Senior programs coordinated by Home Instead franchise offices across the country.

Disaster Relief Fund

When a disaster is presidentially declared, the Home Instead Foundation comes to the rescue with the help of generous donations to the Disaster Relief Program. The Home Instead franchise network comes together to bring immediate relief grants to CAREGivers and key players impacted by the disaster. These grants provide essentials such as food, water, clothing and shelter during these difficult times.
