SAGE, Services and Advocacy for Gay Elders, just scored two big grants. The Calamus Foundation has given the New York-based group a $1 million matching grant over four years for implementing the group’s new strategic plan, “one of the largest awards the foundation has ever given,” according to the SAGE release. SAGE has to get individuals, foundations, and corporations to match the donation in order to receive it.


Atlantic Philanthropies gave SAGE $500,000, also to help with the strategic plan as well as for “capacity building” for its board.


Stacey Easterling of Atlantic said, “SAGE’s pioneering work in the field is key to insuring that LGBT Americans can obtain a reasonable quality of life in later years.”
