GRANTMAKING

The Next Gen Giving Circle recognizes that Black and Brown communities face inequitable access to opportunities to build wealth and establish economic security, and that the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color. For this year’s grantmaking cycle, NGGC seeks to support organizations working to advance economic justice and financial security of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals and families in the region.

 

Through July 31, NGGC invited applications from organizations with annual budgets up to $1 million that work to ensure individuals and families can build assets and establish financial strength and security.

Next Gen Giving Circle reconoce que las comunidades negras y Latinx enfrentan un acceso injusto a oportunidades para construir riqueza y establecer seguridad económica, y que las consecuencias económicas de la pandemia de COVID-19 han tenido un impacto desproporcionado en las comunidades de color. Para el ciclo de concesión de subvención de este año, el NGGC busca apoyar a las organizaciones que trabajan para promover la justicia económica y la seguridad financiera de los individuos y familias BIPOC (Negro, Indígena y Personas de Color) que viven en la region.

 

NGGC invita a aplicar las organizaciones con presupuestos anuales de hasta $1 millones que trabajan para asegurar que las personas y las familias puedan construir activos y establecer fortaleza financiera y seguridad.

SPRING RAPID RELIEF

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)

  • Grantee Selection

 

Grant amounts are decided by members during the review process and typically range from $2,500 - $15,000.

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 received 55 applications and gave $40,000 to six organizations working at the intersection of racial equity and economic empowerment. NGGC also gave $4,000 in follow up support grants to its 2020 recipients.

In 2022, NGGC received 38 applications and gave $40,000 to four organizations working at the intersection of racial equity and economic empowerment. NGGC also gave $15,000 in follow up support grants to its 2021 recipients.
