Every year, the Next Gen Giving Circle spends time learning about members to target a grant priority that best reflects our group interests.
Once we determine a priority, our grants committee designs and releases an application each summer. Our request for proposal (RFP) process follows the same general format:
Application open (~6 weeks)
Initial review period (~3 weeks)
Finalist review period (~3 weeks)
In 2020, NGGC received 55 applications and gave $25,000 to five organizations working on housing and food access in the Greater Washington region. NGGC also gave a discretionary $5,000 relief grant (no application) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, NGGC has ~$45,000 to allocate. The application is live and will remain open until August 27th. Please read the grant guidelines on our home page for more information. Grant amounts are decided by members during the review process and typically range from $2,500 - $10,000.
