Green Bay – Five nonprofit initiatives serving adults aged 60 and older in Door County were recently awarded grants through The R. Bruce & Alyce S. Kopseker Trust, a fund of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.

The awards invest $67,737 into projects, primarily north of Sturgeon Bay, that aim to help older adults remain healthy and independent in their homes.

As of the most recent U.S. Census, individuals aged 65 and older comprise roughly a third of Door County’s year-round residents. 

“Most people are aware that Door County is one of the older counties in Wisconsin,” Sam Perlman, deputy director and development manager at the Door County Maritime Museum & Lighthouse Preservation Society, said. “That is 100% what our project is all about – providing a good quality of life for our aging population.”
