Help increase the impact young professionals have on improving the Rochester community!
NextGen Rochester's mission is to give a philanthropic voice to young professionals in Rochester through peer-led philanthropy.
The members are the next generation of citizens who make “giving back” part of their lives through leadership, friendship, and philanthropy. This group is comprised of a cross section of the community (typically age 21-45) who find value in grantmaking to local charitable causes and addressing community needs.
Since 2009, NextGen's membership has granted almost $35,000 through 19 grants to local nonprofits.
Currently, the membership is raising funds to increase the impact of the group's 4th round of community grants.
NextGen Rochester not only builds assets, but compassion, knowledge, and community engagement.
