Membership

We are looking for high-school girls in grades 9-12 who want to make a difference in Fairfield County! When you join Generation Impact, you’ll raise $100 to donate toward our grant fund. These contributions from each girl will be combined into a $10,000 grant, which we’ll gift to the local, youth-serving non-profit of our choice. Together, we will find and review charities from our community to learn about their missions and their work.

By participating in Generation Impact, you’ll have the opportunity to:

·      Meet girls from other schools
·      Gain confidence in public speaking
·      Learn the value of inclusivity
·      Work together to plan events and learn about the community
·      Determine and get involved with the winning organization
·      Deliver the final grant
·      See the exponential power of giving
 

We invite all high school girls who live in or attend school in Fairfield County to join us!

LOCAL IMPACT GRANT

 

 

Our Leadership Committees 

Generation Impact will be managed by four Leadership Committees, which will meet twice monthly on Sunday afternoons from September through April. Time commitments vary by committee. Each Committee Chair will determine its’ own schedule.

 

Grants

Our Grants committee is a great fit for girls who want to dive deepest into the philanthropic process. You’ll work with our Women Leadership to develop and manage the Generation Impact grants process, from submitting our requests for proposals to awarding the Generation Impact Grant. You’ll also learn our grants management system, develop proposals, prepare member training materials and other documents, and have the opportunity to serve as the primary liaison between Generation Impact and our non-profit applicants.

MEMBERSHIP

Our Membership Committee needs girls who have a talent for forming and building relationships. You’ll be in charge of managing the recruitment process: developing a yearly recruitment strategy, keeping track of our contacts and contributions lists, following up on missing information, and composing membership forms and welcome letters. You’ll also help to plan Generation Impact recruitment events, including invitations, reminders, and RSVP’s. 

COMMUNICATIONS

If you have an exceptional interest in websites, social media and writing, join our Communications Committee! In this role, you’ll develop and oversee Generation Impact’s communications with prospects, members, leadership, Impact FFC and press. You’ll manage our website; updating it regularly with ongoing content and updates, and also handle our social media channels, press releases, messaging and recruitment handouts at events.

 

FUNDRASING & EVENTS

Calling all girls with a passion for party planning! As part of our Fundraising and Events Committee, you’ll be coordinating all event-related tasks: recruitment and fundraising events, planning our annual grant award meeting, locating and booking venues, ordering catering, preparing décor, managing volunteers and takeaway gifts, corporate underwriting, and more. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to plan a volunteer event with the chosen Generation Impact Grantee.
