Next Generation Philanthropy

Next Generation Philanthropy at the Central Valley Community Foundation was created by young professionals and emerging leaders living and working in the Fresno/Clovis community. Building on CVCF’s expertise and reputation, members have established their own approach to supporting our community. Next Generation Philanthropy (NGP) has the vision to connect, cultivate and inspire the next generation of philanthropists to take action in their communities. NGP’s mission is to become the premier training program for the next generation of board members, civic leaders, and community activists in the Central Valley.


Requirements for Participation:

  • Contribute a minimum of $1,000 per individual / $1,500 per couple to the fund
  • Attend monthly lunch meetings on the third Wednesday from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (NGP has a strict attendance policy for all members who wish to maintain voting rights)
  • Participate in a service learning project with a cause or organization determined by NGP
  • Serve on one grant committee

Want to join NextGen?

NGP was founded on the principles of giving our time, talent and treasure collectively to make a larger impact. The group has grown from 16 members in the first year to 43 members participating in the third year of the program. The short-term goal is to start an Administrative Endowment to create a more sustainable model for the group’s efforts. The long-term goal to multiply NPG impact and leadership into new communities across the Central Valley.
