NextGen Program

The Impact 100 Martin NextGen Program seeks to give the next generation of women – particularly those who may not have the financial resources – an opportunity to become Impact 100 Martin members and engage with the community while learning the lessons of philanthropy. The program aims to empower and inspire young women of our community to involve themselves more fully in giving and serving the needs of Martin County.

Members and friends of Impact 100 Martin interested in supporting and mentoring a NextGen member will contribute $1,100 to a scholarship account maintained by The Community Foundation Martin-St. Lucie.  If you would like to sponsor the next generation of philanthropists, click here.

Four applicants will be selected to be NextGen members for the 2020 Impact Grant cycle.

NextGen members will:

  • Receive a scholarship of $750 to be used in the first year of membership to help pay the $1100 membership donation, followed by a scholarship of $350 to be used in the second year of membership. The NextGen member will be responsible for the full membership of $1,100 the third year.
  • Enjoy full membership privileges during the two-year scholarship period, including the opportunity to participate in the grant-making process and to cast a vote for the grant finalists.
  • Be exposed to and learn about the work being done by the nonprofit organizations in Martin County.
  • Have the chance to network with and be mentored by a group of women committed to philanthropy and community service.
