The Next Generation of Philanthropists, WORTH, is a program of the North Texas Community Foundation comprised of young professionals committed to making our community a better place through informed giving for a collective impact. Every year young professionals ages 25-40 learn about needs in the community, choose a focus area, review proposals from nonprofits working in that space, and collectively decide on who to fund. After making a grant, members follow up with a site visit to the nonprofit(s) they funded.
Members join WORTH by making a $250 annual donation to the WORTH Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation. In return for the members’ donation, four private investors have provided dollar for dollar matching, up to $40,000 per year for members to grant at their discretion.
WORTH members have granted more than $72,000 to-date to five local nonprofits. By combining donations, the group’s members achieve great charitable impact.
