Bringing Together Like-Minded Partners to Develop Solutions

“We need to be a part of solution” – The response from two potential funders after understanding the challenges of aging veterans

While asking the right questions is fundamental to the discovery process in fundraising to acquire useful and accurate information, the most important part is to listen. Listening is a commitment of Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services.In August, we engaged with several organizations in which they all shared and recognized the needs and challenges facing aging veterans, particularly the cost and access to long-term care services. We heard them loud and clear – there is a need for an innovative solution. Serving as a catalyst for change, Dixon Center is in collaboration with relevant community-based partners and funding partners such as United Methodist Communities, Soldier On, Lever for Change, Humana and AARP Foundation to test and develop solutions.We listened, we learned, and we are taking action to address this need.
