WHY CITIZEN GENERATION
Citizen Generation is centered on the belief that in order to make our city the best place to live, play, and work, all individuals should be active in the betterment of their community.
Create the habit of giving through philanthropic experiences and community programs.
Cultivate donors for life for the betterment of their communities and world.
WHERE AUSTIN’S PHILANTHROPY CURRENTLY STANDS
Citizen Generation strongly believes that with an active and philanthropic community, the city will excel in all areas. With Austin ranked 48th out of the 50 top cities in the nation in per capita giving, there is a major need to teach philanthropy and citizenship at a younger age.
HOW WE DO IT
Citizen Generation is continuously looking at ways to engage people in philanthropy and citizenship. Our focus is on you, what you like to do and learn, and using that activity to benefit a good cause. Through our programs CharityBash, CharityLadies, CharityLunch, and CharityVolunteers, we are making philanthropy and community involvement fun, affordable, and accessible. Together, we are a new generation, one of active citizens making a positive change.
“Though these donors may not become high value until later in life, using resources to acquire young donors now will help prevent your organization from being confined to a small portion of the giving population in the future.” – Grizzard Communications Group, 2009 Donor Survey
Citizen Generation is financially administered by the Austin Community Foundation: www.AustinCommunityFoundation.org
Citizen Generation keeps a percent of funds raised to reinvest into future programs.
