Alzheimer's Prevalence, Deaths, Cost of Care Up Sharply
The total cost of paid care for people living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia is projected to reach $277 billion in 2018, a report from the Alzheimer's Association finds.
The report, 2018 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures, found that 5.7 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, including 5.5 million people age 65 and older — 10 percent of all older adults; by 2025 that number is projected to reach 7.1 million. The report also found that the number of deaths from Alzheimer's increased 123 percent between 2000 and 2015, making the disease the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the fifth-leading cause for those age 65 and older. During the same period, the number of deaths from heart disease, the number-one cause of death among Americans, fell 11 percent.
According to the report, the projected total cost in 2018 of health care, long-term care, and hospice care for people with Alzheimer's and other dementias — which includes $186 billion in Medicare and Medicaid costs and $60 billion in out-of-pocket costs — will increase by $20 billion on a year-over-year basis and is projected to exceed $1.1 trillion by 2050. In addition, an estimated 16.1 million Americans provided a total of 18.4 billion hours of unpaid caregiving, valued at $232 billion in 2017 for people with Alzheimer's or other dementias. Nearly half (48 percent) of unpaid caregivers for older adults are caring for someone suffering dementia, with a third of those caregivers age 65 or older, two-thirds women, and a third daughters caring for a parent.
A special report included in the study, Alzheimer's Disease: Financial and Personal Benefits of Early Diagnosis, highlights new economic modeling data indicating that early diagnosis of Alzheimer's during the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) stage could save the nation as much as $7.9 trillion in health and long-term care expenditures over the lifetimes of all Americans living today. In a scenario in which people were more likely to be diagnosed during the MCI stage rather than the dementia stage, per-person costs for health and long-term care would fall from the current $424,000 to $360,000, while those living with Alzheimer's would benefit from a more accurate diagnosis and be able to adopt lifestyle changes that could help preserve cognitive function, participate in clinical trials, plan for the future, and maximize time spent with loved ones or engaged in meaningful activities.

Growth of Impact Investing Significant, But More Needed, Study Finds
Although the field of impact investing has grown significantly over the past decade, it is still only generating a fraction of the impact needed to make a measurable difference in addressing the challenges facing the global community, a report from the Global Impact Investing Network finds.
Funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation, the report, Roadmap for the Future of Impact Investing, argues that investors and consumers increasingly are driving the movement for change in global financial and economic systems. Due to the scale of the challenges, however, which include growing inequality, significant pressures on the environment, and the spread of populist political movements, the responsibility to address those challenges cannot fall on governments and philanthropy alone. With the goal of encouraging corporations and private investors to become more involved, the report outlines six areas in which immediate actions are needed to mobilize much-needed capital in support of solutions to critical social and environmental challenges, change the paradigm that governs investment behavior and expectations, and improve the choice and accessibility of impact investment products and services.
To see the report go to https://thegiin.org/assets/GIIN_Roadmap%20for%20the%20Future%20of%20Impact%20Investing.pdf.
For each area, the report outlines specific actions that need to be taken by a diverse range of groups, including investors, wealth advisors, academics, governments, funders, and those dedicated to building the impact investing field. The report also includes a summary of some of the trends likely to affect the field in the years to come, including automation in the workplace, changes in the field of financial technology and the evolution of the investment profession, the democratization of data, crowdfunding, and a massive transfer of wealth to women and younger generations.

Disability-Related Participatory Research: 2018-3
SOURCE: Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 5/18/18.
$ AVAILABLE: $25,000 per year for up to five years 
ELIGIBILITY: Public agencies, not-for-profit organizations, secondary schools and post-secondary institutions, faith-based institutions, technical and/or professional schools, and for-profit businesses may apply if they can meet the requirements noted elsewhere in this RFP. The entity that applies for this grant must be the entity that will administer the grant and receive, disburse, and account for grant funds. Individuals are not eligible.
PURPOSE: TCDD issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to fund up to three organizations to support a person with a developmental disability (DD) to participate as a researcher in a study that could impact the lives of people with DD. Through this RFP, Texas-based teaching or research entities can include people with DD in either new or existing participatory research projects. Participatory research is a partnership approach to research that equitably involves multiple people in all aspects of the research process. With this approach, all partners contribute expertise, participate in decision-making, and share ownership of the research project. Research studies that focus on how people with DD are affected by certain issues or practices often don’t include people with DD on the research team. If people with DD are included as researchers in studies, they can provide a valuable perspective that may influence the direction and design of the study.

The overall goals are to understand how to reduce stigma as a factor in HIV transmission, to eliminate or mitigate the aspects of stigma that limit beneficial health outcomes for the infected and at-risk individuals and communities, and to initiate exploratory studies to determine the feasibility of stigma interventions related to HIV prevention, treatment and/or care in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).

PURPOSE: The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood supports innovative projects and programs with the potential to significantly enhance the development, health, safety, education, and/or quality of life of children from infancy through five years of age.

That preparation relates to every aspect of a child’s development, and everywhere a child learns — at home, in childcare settings and in preschool. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning through the development of innovative curricula and research based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments.

Webinar - Internal Controls: Your First Line of Defense
SPONSOR: Thompson Grants 
WHEN: April 19, noon to 1:30 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: The nonprofit community was recently stunned when it was revealed that a large national nonprofit organization suffered an embezzlement of over seven million dollars at the hands of one of its most trusted accountants. Situations like this are exactly why understanding internal controls is so important: it's a sure-fire way to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse within your organization.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) expects all non-Federal entities to have a documented system of controls that provides reasonable assurance that Federal awards are being managed in compliance with Federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the Federal award. This webinar will show you exactly where to start.
In this 90-minute webinar, Capital Edge consultant Dan Durst will explain the basic principles of internal controls, the key requirements in 2 CFR 200, differences between preventative vs detective, proper segregation of duties, and common control activities related to high-risk areas in the organization. You will also have the opportunity to ask your own questions in the Q&A portion of this webinar.
Keep your organization in compliance with Federal statutes. Adequate internal controls provide the foundation for successful financial management. Organizations need to periodically review their system of internal controls to ensure that it is adequately designed and operating effectively.
COST: Live: $249. On demand: $249. Live and on demand: $349. To register go to http://grants.thompson.com/Internal-Controls-Your-First-Line-of-Defense?src=EM&_zs=hXbRL1&_zl=8eqO4
