About NextGen Rochester
NextGen Rochester is a peer-led form of philanthropy. The members are the next generation of citizens who make “giving back” part of their lives through leadership, friendship, and philanthropy.
This group is comprised of a cross section of the community (typically age 21-45) who find value in grant-making to local charitable causes and addressing community needs. It is the intention of NextGen Rochester to not only build assets, but compassion, knowledge, and community engagement.
Each NextGen Rochester member contributes to a fund that makes grants to nonprofits selected by the members. By pooling their contributions together, emerging leaders are given a seat of influence in greater Rochester and are able to create an impact far greater than each could individually.
You can also learn more about NextGen Rochester by joining its group on Facebook or by following its activities on Twitter.
