Next Generation

We need to embolden and invest in the next generation of children and young adults, providing them with immense opportunities to lead. We are excited to support projects in education, skill development, and leadership development. Specific examples could include mentorship programs, scholarships, and social entrepreneurship training.

We will accept applications at three levels:

Level 1 – Projects asking for $5,000-$14,999

Level 2 – Projects asking for $15,000-$49,999

Level 3 – Projects asking for $50,000 – $100,000. For large projects, we ask for collaboration between two or more organizations. One would be a 501(c)(3) community benefit organization, and the other could be a CBO, a for-profit entity, or a municipal entity.

This application will open on June 3rd
