: Moving Nonprofit Leaders From Next to Now
builds the capacity of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders age 40 and under to have significant impact on society's toughest challenges.

Emerging leaders in NGen have opportunities for: 
  • Professional and leadership development,
  • Networking and peer support,
  • Connections with established sector leaders, and
  • Recognition for achievements.

The NGen program contributes to the cultivation of new talent, empowers NGeners to contribute to their organizations, and emphasizes the role of emerging leaders in the development of the broader nonprofit community.
