By Robert Wolf

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2006

On January 7, 2006, the first of 77 million Baby Boomers turns 60. The doubling of the numbers of Americans over 65 between 2000 and 2030 will pose both challenges and opportunities for our country. Clearly philanthropy, both Jewish and secular, will play a critical role in shaping a societal response. This article examines trends in philanthropy and geriatrics, looking at both the dollars awarded and the programs and institutions that have emerged as critical change agents.
