Since the inception of the Tideswell ELIA program, we have witnessed remarkable transformations and contributions from individuals like you who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the field of aging.  The impact of your work continues to reverberate, your commitment to innovation, compassion, and excellence is a testament to the values instilled by this program.  

We also wanted to share that the philanthropic funding supporting this program for the past 10 years is ending, so this might be our last year of the program.  If you know of any foundations or organizations that might be interested in supporting the future of our program, please let us know.  

The challenges posed by an aging population are more pressing than ever, demanding innovative solutions and visionary leadership.  We believe in the potential of our alumni community to drive positive change, and we invite you to join us in a new endeavor – one that seeks to extend the reach of the Tideswell ELIA program for future emerging leaders in aging.  

We are more than a program – we are a community bound by a shared vision.  Your involvement, whether through a financial contribution or by spreading the word, will make a significant impact.  Join us as we continue to forge a path to find and support the emerging leaders in our field.  

Please visit our Crowdfunding Page to learn more about our efforts to sustain this program.  Together, we can create lasting change and a legacy that resonates for years to come.
