Future Fund of Central New York

Established in 2004 by young professionals in the Central New York area, the Future Fund operated for ten years as a “giving circle” that provided its members an opportunity to pool their charitable gifts and to collaborate with others to have a greater impact with their giving. After a decade of collaborative giving and grantmaking, facing lapsing membership, the Future Fund transitioned to a field-of-interest fund that provides annual grants to local initiatives engaging young professionals in civic participation and community leadership. In this way, the mission of the Future Fund — to promote and encourage the spirit of philanthropy and volunteerism among young people in Central New York.— will be carried forward in perpetuity.
