About the Future Fund

Future Fund is a membership-supported endowment fund that makes grants to nonprofit organizations serving local children and youth. Membership dues are pooled into the endowment, and grants are made each year to causes benefiting kids in our community!


As a Future Fund member, you'll have the opportunity to serve on the grant committee to determine which organizations will receive funding.

Members receive invitations to attend social events when Future Fund members get together and celebrate the impact made to improve the lives of children and youth. Future Fund members also receive advance ticket notifications for the Open Road concert series. 

Be part of family services days, when members and their families can volunteer for nonprofits serving local kids.

With the Impact-Maker and Lifetime memberships, the funds from those levels can make a lasting impact on the lives of local children and youth through the power of endowment. Learn more about how endowment works here.
