MORE About THE VIRGINIA G. PIPER CHARITABLE TRUST

http://pipertrust.org/encore/

Every two years, Piper Trust Encore Prizes for Exceptional Organizations recognize nonprofits and public agencies that are pioneering new ways of involving adults, age 50+, in solving problems, meeting important social needs, and improving life for people and communities.

The encore concept—engaging people age 50+ in roles that combine personal meaning with social impact—is growing across the country, and particularly in Phoenix with its 1.1 million baby boomers. As such, it’s critical to understand this population’s great potential for positive impact on the region’s communities.
