EveryAge Foundation Fund Renamed in Honor of Former CFO
EveryAge announced Feb. 20 that its Foundation’s Board of Trustees has renamed the existing Innovation Fund to the John B. White Innovation Fund.
The fund is now named in honor of White, the CFO of EveryAge who died last November after battling cancer. White’s passion was technology, innovation, and operating efficiencies. He served as CFO from 2020 to 2022.
The fund originally was established in 2018 in order to provide financial support for new ideas, devices, and processes in senior living and senior health care. Whether independent living, assisted living, memory care, PACE programs, long-term care, or rehabilitation, care delivery is constantly modified to meet regulatory and individual needs. The fund helps provide funds to keep pace with those changes.
Funds are used to support the nonprofit mission of EveryAge and position the organization as a leader and innovator around the most challenging issues facing seniors today and into the future. The John B. White Innovation Fund seeks to increase EveryAge’s capacity to make a measurable improvement not only in the lives of people served by the programs, but also for the people who are actively serving residents or participants. It might be the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs.
“Financial health and innovation are close companions in the work that we do to provide seniors with the best quality of life possible,” said Lee Syria, president and CEO of EveryAge. “During his tenure, John and I shared a powerful vision for building upon the financial stewardship of EveryAge’s history. Renaming the John B. White Innovation Fund in his memory allows us to honor his work and his belief in the mission of EveryAge.”
