National Grandparents Day

About the National Grandparents Day Council

The National Grandparents Day Council is a non-profit corporation, established by descendants of Marian H. McQuade, Founder of National Grandparents Day.

The purpose of the Council is to enlarge and enhance the celebration of National Grandparents Day by cultivating intergenerational activities throughout the year.

Our goals are to honor grandparents and to strengthen the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Additionally, we strive to draw compassionate attention to the eldest of society's elderly--those in nursing homes.
