More than 15 years ago, DuPage Foundation’s Next Generation Initiative (NGI) began with a small group of individuals looking to inspire the next generation of philanthropic leaders to make an impact through their charitable giving.

Today, the DuPage Foundation’s Next Generation Initiative welcomes members from different backgrounds and age groups who share a common purpose: to connect, learn and give back as they make a difference in DuPage. NGI hosts a mix of activities for members each year, including social events, volunteer projects, and more. Since its inception, NGI has granted more than $130,000 to local not-for-profit organizations.
