Dear Fellow GU Board Members,
I am reaching out to you to announce The AARP Purpose Prize which showcases the amazing social impact that people 50+ are having. I know I am talking to a community of believers when I say that AARP is challenging outdated beliefs and stereotypes about what it means to grow older. The AARP Purpose Prize is a high-profile way for us to put a spotlight on the remarkable accomplishments of five exceptional individuals who have tapped the wealth of experience to foster enduring, innovative social impact.
Through a rigorous review process, recipients of the award will each receive $50,000 to celebrate their achievements and help broaden the scope of their work. I think you will be especially interested in one of the prizes: The Andrus Prize for Intergenerational Excellence. Named for our founder, this specific Purpose Prize will acknowledge the efforts of someone who is working across the generations to make the world a better place.
I’m asking you each a favor: Could you help promote the AARP Purpose Prize as we launch our call for nominations? Please see the attached flyer for more details about the prize and the process for nominations. It is our goal to get a rich, diverse pool of applicants who are putting their life experiences toward making positive social change. Nominations are currently open and will run through May 12, 2017.
Please do not hesitate me if you have questions or need additional information. In advance, thank you so much for your help. Read more ...
