Future Fund is:
A group of young (22-40ish) professionals who are investing their time, energy and a few dollars into making Greensboro AWESOME.
An initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, “Funders” make an investment of $150 into the Future Fund endowment each year. The endowment allows the Funders to grant $45,000+ to local nonprofits in Guilford County through the Future Fund 10 program. The program (in a nutshell):
-Funders choose 10 Finalists
-Finalists receive 4 coaching sessions
-Finalists give 3 minute pitch at FF10 LIVE (think SHARK TANK style)
-Audience (over 300 people! ) votes for grant award winner
-Nonprofit “Winner” takes away $20,000! Five other cash awards are also given.
On top of making a HUGE IMPACT in Greensboro, Future Funders enjoy socials, networking events, and connecting with the 1000 Future Fund Alumni to grow their connections.
