2014 Eisner Prize

Bridge Meadows is incredibly honored to be a recipient of the 2014 Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence presented by The Eisner Foundation of Los Angeles, California.

The Eisner Prize is a national award that recognizes an individual or a non-profit organization for efforts to unite multiple generations – especially seniors and youth – and bring about positive, lasting changes in their communities.

On October 29th, our team traveled to the Encore Nation Conference in Tempe, AZ, to accept this award at a special luncheon. This conference brings together 400 leaders to shape the agenda for a movement to promote new ways people in the second halves of their life can contribute to creating a more powerful force for civic good in America—and abroad.
