What’s Future Fund?
A group of young (22-40ish) professionals who are investing their time, energy and a few dollars into making Greensboro AWESOME.
Future Fund is an initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro. ”Funders” make an investment of $150 into the Future Fund endowment each year. Once they are a funder they can be involved as much or as little as they like in the events and committee throughout the year.
Future Fund hosts social and networking events with other funders and Future Fund alumni (over 1000 strong!). Active members plan and produce the innovative Future Fund 10 Program and Future Fund 10 LIVE to award over $45,000 to local nonprofits. The program is part incubator, part nonprofit Shark Tank and allows 10 nonprofits to give a 3-minute pitch to win the top prize of $20,000.
Funders gain friendships, mentors, and new skills as they work on various subcommittees to plan the program and event. Plus they get to be part of an initiative bigger than themselves and truly make Greensboro what they want it to be.
