Now Accepting Nominations for the 2015 Next Gen Donor Institute
We are now accepting nominations for the Next Gen Donor Institute Class of 2015. Throughout this year-long program, participants will develop a deeper understanding of their own philanthropic journey and identity as well as learn from peers and industry leaders about the needs in the community. Participants will have a chance to engage with others in a supportive and private community, and will leave with new tools and resources and a network to help shape their giving and leadership.
Participants in the GHCF Next Generation Donor Institute will go through a simple nomination process or may self-nominate. Once a nomination has been received, the nominee will be notified immediately and if he/she is interested in the program, will be asked to complete a one-page application. Nominations may come from a current GHCF donor, Governing Board member, Community Foundation Council member, Next Gen Alumni, family foundation, professional advisor, or through self-nomination.
• Involved in significant giving such as serving as a trustee of a family foundation or an advisor on a donor advised fund
• Desire to develop skills and knowledge around strategic philanthropy
• 25 – 40 years old
