Step 1: JOIN
The GenNext+ Giving Circles are currently made up of three established circles: Youth Mental Health, Path to Pride, and Social Enterprise. Once you’ve identified which of these causes you’d like to support, you can join the existing group with a minimum donation of $20 a month or a one-time donation of $240.
Step 2: CONNECT
Networking is a BIG part of GenNext Ottawa. Join us at our GenNext Mix & Mingles and Schmoozefest, to connect with Ottawa’s young philanthropic community and change-makers. Along with introducing you to new people, you’ll also learn about the work that United Way is doing to make our city a better place to live because keeping you informed about what we do and the impact of your support is our priority.
Step 3: INVITE
Invite friends and colleagues with a common desire to make a difference to join us at our GenNext events, where they can learn more about how Giving Circles work. After all, the more people that join your Giving Circle, the more impact you can have.
Step 4: REVEAL
Accumulated funds from your monthly donation will be added to the Giving Circle of your choice. At the end of the yearly cycle in October, investment outcomes will be revealed at GenNext Ottawa’s annual Schmoozefest event — the ultimate networking event for Ottawa’s best and brightest—where you’ll learn about how much was raised collectively through each Giving Circle.
