Are you a young professional who wants to make a difference in your community?

Consider joining our NextGen Giving Circle.

A Giving Circle is a form of participatory philanthropy where individuals pool their donations and collectively decide which charities will be awarded grants.

Anyone is welcome to join the NextGen Giving Circle, but most members are in the 20- to 40-year-old age range.

When you join, you’ll learn about philanthropy and the nonprofits doing great work in our region. You will have the chance to go on site visits to local nonprofits, and annually, with your fellow members, you will determine which organizations and projects to fund through a Community Foundation staff-led grantmaking process.

Established in 2017, the Giving Circle made its most recent round of grants in 2021, awarding:

  • $10,000 to the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund for the promotion of self-care and mental health with Latinx teenagers via Zoom
  • $10,000 to Millhill Child and Family Development for technology for summer learning
  • $5,000 to HomeFront to increase efficiencies and expand their reach
  • $10,000 to Womanspace to prevent dating violence and sexual assault through peer-to-peer education

Make an annual gift or contribute monthly with a recurring gift. Founder Jeremy Perlman believes the subscription model for philanthropy is a natural fit for his generation, because young people are accustomed to subscribing to services, such as Netflix and Spotify.
