We inspire people over fifty to give forward with their time, money, and voice so that younger and future generations can thrive. Together, we believe: Each generation can improve the quality of life for the next. We need each other, and together we are stronger. Everyone can give forward so future generations can thrive.
SAGE sparks the imagination and commitment of people over fifty who believe in generational equity: each generation has the responsibility to give forward and improve the quality of life for the next.
To accomplish our work, we raise awareness about major challenges facing future generations with a focus on education, the environment, and the economy (the 3 Es). We also connect people to resources and opportunities to get involved, and we train and support people to actively engage in social causes and nonprofit organizations. We work across generations because we need each other and the future needs all the advocates it can get.
Each year, we aim to inspire, train, and support over 1,000 people to give forward in their communities. Across our work, we collaborate with partners and volunteers to bring to life this Greek Proverb at the heart of SAGE:
A society grows great when its elders plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
