At Jean Griswold Foundation, a 501(c)(3) private charity established in 2010, we believe that quality, compassionate care for the elderly and disabled should be available to all and not just the privileged. We have a vision of a future where all seniors, regardless of their financial status, have the opportunity to age with dignity and age in place.
We pride ourselves on helping those in need. In response to the COVID-19 crisis we have provided $50,000 towards relief supporting food for low income seniors during the 2020 pandemic.

Jean Griswold Foundation prides itself on always being there for those in need. We provide grants to nonprofit organizations or individuals. Our goal is to offer age in place services that include bringing or providing food, companionship, homemaking, and transportation. In 2020, we were able to make a large donation to Meals on Wheels America, and they chose to use this money to fund a research project about senior isolation.
In response to the current COVID-19 crisis, we have donated $50,00 in relief to organizations and programs that provide food to low-income seniors. During this unique time of isolation, we believe it’s even more important than ever to come together for those most in need.
Supporting Those Who Support Others
Simple, everyday tasks that we take for granted are much more difficult for seniors and people with disabilities. Tasks like cooking and grocery shopping become difficult or impossible, and even the act of eating may require assistance. Age in place services can assist them with everything from personal care to companionship to medication reminders. A major part of our grant consideration is based on if the nonprofit provides solutions to these problems.
The Griswold brand makes sizable donations every year and has given hundreds of grants to various organizations. Our very own franchisees help significantly with fundraising, and of every dollar donated, 88% goes toward the cause, while the remaining helps to keep our foundation running.
