BoomerWorks is revolutionizing the way long-term unemployed people ages 50+ think about generating income. Becoming income resilient requires solutions to overcome the traditional W-2 mindset and invigorate career paths for millions of sidelined workers. 

Providing educational programming, training, access to resources and community building takes funding. BoomerWorks, a 501(c)(3) program of the United Charitable Foundation, relies on the financial support from our valued donors – like you! 

Please join us today in making a difference in people’s lives and livelihoods. No donation is too small.

Thank you!


Our fundraising goal of $1 million by the end of 2019 will support a range of opportunities enabling professionals ages 50+ to transition successfully into freelance and small business ownership. 

In the summers of 2017 and 2018 we introduced two community-wide Bootcamps. Building on these successful events, we will be launching MeetUp groups throughout the Washington, DC area and hosting additional live Bootcamps in 2019.  

In the long-term, we will offer a range of opportunities including the following:

EDUCATION: To support our national and global expansion, we will provide...

  • “BoomerWorks in a  Box” instructional videos and curriculum that will be used by qualified facilitators at live regional MeetUp groups
  • Nationally renowned authors and speakers who are experts in the field of self-employment and business development 
  • Featured BoomerWorks pioneers who have transitioned to income resilience       
  • An E-book on how to enter the freelance and small business economy
  • Newsletters and updates on BoomerWorks activities and the progress of our community 
  • Blogs, videos and podcasts on a variety of freelance and small business topics
  • Ongoing skills training focused on the use of technology and social media to support full engagement with the evolving marketplace

COMMUNITY BUILDING: To foster a growing and supportive movement of self-employed professionals, we will provide ongoing learning, resource sharing and mutual accountability, along with care for the emotional and financial needs of the whole person. 

REGIONAL CONFERENCES: As our Bootcamps become more robust, we envision large gatherings across the US and globally to convene self-employed professionals, thought leaders, employers and related alliance partners. 

TECHNOLOGY: To facilitate  ongoing, meaningful connections among our self-employed community, we will  launch a digital platform that educates, builds community and provides a robust algorithm to connect professionals with each other and with employers  eager to retain the services of a flexible workforce. 

ADMINISTRATION: In alignment with our mission, we plan to employ people ages 50+ in the strategic, fundraising and logistical roles of executive director, program manager and administrative coordinator. In the long-term, other functional areas will include staff to manage constituent relations, marketing/communications and curriculum development.
