Experience Matters receives generous grant

Experience Matters, an organization that connects baby boomers with nonprofit and social service organizations to improve the quality of life in Maricopa County, has received a $1.6 million grant over four years from Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. The grant allows Experience Matters to expand its infrastructure to offer more paid and unpaid opportunities to more boomers seeking work in the social sector. Often referred to as encore careers, this represents a new life-stage in which experienced boomers find meaningful ways to engage in the community.

Experience Matters aims to expand operations and deliver $34 million in human capital to Maricopa County organizations over the next five years. The organization’s strategic plan to connect boomers with service organizations was crafted by a group of experienced strategists, business owners, technologists, marketing experts and nonprofit executives and community leaders over a six-month period.
