Is philanthropic, charitable contributions, volunteerism your style? Want to grow your leadership skills even more? Then take a gander at the other young professional organizations in Greensboro that synerG regularly partners with below.
The Future Fund, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, is a fresh approach to philanthropy. Its members are a group of young leaders from the Greensboro area who are committed to making our community a better place and improving the quality of life for all of our citizens. Future Fund members have this impact on their community by contributing to a permanent endowment that makes grants to build a better Greensboro. Each Future Fund member contributes $125 each to an endowment that makes grants to launch new projects and initiatives that are selected by Future Fund members. By pooling their funds together, emerging leaders are given a "seat at the table" in Greensboro, and are able to create an impact far greater than each individual could do on their own. The bigger the endowment, the greater the impact.
