NextGen Program Receives Matching Grant!

Our 2017 first cohort of NextGen members, and progeny, welcome the 2018 class at Murphy’s
The Vera C Hendry Foundation has awarded $10,000 as a restricted grant to lmpactl00 Sonoma to commemorate their organization’s 10th anniversary year. This grant is to be used exclusively, during the next three years, to promote community philanthropy among young, professional women as participants in the NextGen Program.
Specifically, the grant will pay 50% of twelve NextGen participants’ annual donation for up to three years. The remaining 50% of their membership fee is to be donated by Impact100 members and/or other donors. According to the Foundation, “The NextGen Program is a wonderful contribution to Sonoma Valley and we are pleased to help ensure a strong foundation so that it may continue, not just for the next three years, but for years to come.”
The NextGen Program is primarily made possible by individual donations
from our members. If you would like to help sponsor the program, we are beginning to raise matching funds for the 2019 cohort. A contribution of any amount is welcome. Checks can be mailed to Impact100 Sonoma, P.O. Box 1958, Sonoma, CA 95476, with “NextGen” noted in the Memo Line. Contributions may also be made here.
