NextGen Awards $20,000 in Education
2021 Grants Cycle
NextGen, the Santa Fe Community Foundation's group of young philanthropists, capped off its fourth grantmaking cycle by awarding $20,000 in grants to two local organizations that are working to advance education.
NextGen is a hands-on experience in philanthropy for rising leaders who care about local issues and want to make a bigger impact. Each year, members of the group work together to pool their giving toward an issue they vote on, view proposals, and award grants to local nonprofits.
2021 Grantees include:
Breakthrough Santa Fe: $10,000
The Learning Hub: A Source of Knowledge, Connection, and Growth
Being a learning organization requires active listening and a willingness to continuously adapt and share knowledge. One way we accomplish this is through our Learning Hub, a source of connection, engagement, and growth among New Mexico nonprofits.
