The 21st Century Fund is a giving circle that is open to anyone who wants to give back to Western New York. All it takes is a onetime membership fee, and then you’re a member for life. Every two years, members vote to provide a $100,000 grant to one nonprofit organization.
Members have the opportunity to network with others who care about Western New York, learn about critical community needs, hear about innovative local projects and meet the dynamic leaders of area nonprofit organizations.
Membership in the fund is $2,100 for any individual, family or organization that wishes to take part – $1,000 if you are age 35 or under. Membership pledges can be paid over the course of five years.
For more information about membership or if you are a member and want to join one of the committees, please contact Nora Kennon, Stewardship Officer, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (716) 852-2857 ext. 254.
