The Prince George's County Social Innovation Fund (PGCSIF) works as a catalyst for social impact. Our mission is to build social capital and invest in new ways of solving old challenges in Prince George's County, Maryland. Forty UNDER 40 Prince George’s is a flagship initiative of PGCSIF. This initiative recognizes top talent in the County in Arts and Humanities, Business, Education, Health and Fitness, Public Service, and Science & Engineering; and then seeks to more actively engage them in civic and socially oriented ventures through advisory, board service, and advocacy opportunities. Join us today on #Give Tuesday (the follow-on to Black Friday and Cyber Monday) in support of this important effort!
After two years of successfully recognizing ‘now’ generation leaders in Prince George’s County (80 to date), nearly 20% of honorees have joined non-profit boards and advisory committees throughout the County. The recognition makes it easy for organizations to identify board recruits. Honorees have also engaged in policy discussions with the Prince George’s County Executive and the leadership at the Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce on issues ranging from public education to economic development and residency preferences for employment and contracting.
We just announced our 2014 Cohort and are fund-raising for the Annual Awards Ceremony scheduled for Forty UNDER 40 on January 29, 2014 at the Sunset Room – National Harbor. See their names at www.innovateprincegeorges.org.
