Giving and learning together

Fourth Generation is a hands-on experience in philanthropy for rising leaders who care about local issues and want to make a bigger impact.


Since Fourth Generation started in 2010, members have raised $493,000 to address the following critical issues: mental health, youth homelessness, food justice, small business development, resources for immigrant populations, aging, criminal justice reform, affordable housing, place-based disparities, and climate justice. Here’s how it works:


Members listen to community and learn from experts about a critical local issue while examining the practice of philanthropy.

Share & Connect

Members connect with their peers and community members to broaden their outlooks and learn about the barriers that hold inequities in place.


By pooling contributions, resources, and diverse perspectives, members collaborate to create an accessible and equitable grantmaking process.
