Jacob Cramer is an American social entrepreneur, writer and activist, known as the founder and executive director of Love For Our Elders.

Founding Love For Our Elders[edit]

In eighth grade, Cramer became inspired by his grandfather's death to make a difference in the lives of older adults.[1] He wrote kind notes to nursing homes, and upon receiving overwhelmingly positive responses, he began recruiting others and teaching himself about building a sustainable nonprofit: sophisticated search engine optimization techniques, digital design, and 501(c)(3) legal requirements. Today, his nonprofit operates on a global scale.[2]

Accomplishments[edit]

In 2015, Cramer became the youngest representing member of the World Kindness Movement.[3] In December 2016, he was featured on the front cover of American Profile magazine for his nonprofit work.[4] Following this, in January 2017, he was featured alongside Lady Gaga and Daniel Lubetzky in sister publication Parade.[5] In January 2018, Cramer was announced as one of Lady Gaga's Channel Kindness reporters for her Born this Way Foundation.[6]

He has given 2 TEDx talks.

On April 30, 2021, E! News honored Jacob as one of 13 Heroes Who Are Inspiring America.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Jacob Eli Cramer was raised in Cleveland, Ohio by parents Barry and Kathy Cramer. He graduated from Orange High School in May 2018 and is a student at Yale University.
