Innovation Award

The SCAN Foundation 2020 Innovation Award will recognize an organization that belongs to our California Advocacy Network of Regional Coalitions, and that has shown leadership in improving the lives of older adults in California.

Member organizations may demonstrate this in a number of ways – through formal and informal roles – including staff appointments to boards and advisory groups, and positions held alongside their involvement in a Regional Coalition.

Criteria was based on Age-Forward 2030 priority areas: (1) age-forward economic development; (2) redesigning the urban landscape for all ages; and (3) resilient networks for healthy aging.

The winner of our 2019 award was the Berkeley Age-Friendly Continuum led by the City of Berkeley. Learn more.
