Our History

The National Alliance for Caregiving was founded in 1996. Led by our founder Gail Gibson Hunt, a group of national organizations came together to meet the needs of caregivers in an aging America. The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, the American Society on Aging, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs – Office of Geriatrics and Extended Care, Glaxo Wellcome, and the National Council on Aging worked together to create a new association that could address the public policy needs of families and quantify the impact of one of the largest unpaid workforces in our society.


Each year, the National Alliance for Caregiving builds momentum to empower America’s families across the lifespan. Our key accomplishments speak to both our mission and vision and the partnerships we continue to build support us in bettering the lives of family caregivers. These impact reports detail the accomplishments achieved by NAC yearly.


The National Alliance for Caregiving is a 501(c)(3) that practices accountability to our funders, partners and to the caregivers we serve. We are proud to be designated the Gold seal of Transparency. As part of our commitment to transparency and our pillar as a sound organization, we have made available our recent audits and 990s.


NAC is a growing organization that needs responsive, nimble and passionate individuals to help advance the wellbeing of caregivers.
