Our Mission:

Impact.

Welcome to Generation Impact, a collective giving circle for high school girls in Fairfield County. Girls who join will learn about the need in our community and the non-profit organizations addressing those needs, as well as have the chance to work together to review grant applications and give thoughtfully.

We invite you to join Generation Impact!

 
 

Our goal is to get 100 girls to join with a membership donation of $100 each, so that we can pool our money and award a $10,000 youth-focused grant to a deserving non-profit.

Members will have the opportunity to

• Learn about the needs in our community
(homelessness, food insecurity, etc.)

• Understand how to give thoughtfully

• Pool membership donations and work with other girls to provide one impactful, youth-focused grant to a worthy non-profit organization

The 3 “Big” Meetings

Members can get as involved as they want; there are several options and time commitment levels.
We have three main meetings a year, and while participation is encouraged, time involved can range from 0 hours (just contributing to the grant) to serving as a Leadership Chair, which is upwards of 30 hours a year.

The Big Learn

Sunday, November 11 / 4:00-5:30 pm

An event for members to learn how to read and evaluate grant applications from non-profits. We will hear from experts, learn about the needs in our community and go through a step-by-step lesson about the grant making process and how to give thoughtfully.

The Big Review

Sunday, January 27 / 4:00-5:30 pm

An event to review grant applications from non-profits and choose finalists. We will work in small groups to carefully review the applications and discuss and evaluate each one. We will choose 3-4 non-profits to become our finalists.

The Big Give!

Sunday, April 7 / 4:00-6:00 pm

The most important event of the year! All members are encouraged to attend & learn about our finalists programs from the non-profits! Each member will cast a vote for our first Generation Impact Grant
winner!

These events will be held @ Arch Street Teen Center, Greenwich
