What is NextGen?

We're a group of community and civic-minded individuals who are taking the future into our own hands by creating a city that attracts and gives voice to the 18-40 year old generation by connecting people, places, communities, and ideas.

TIMERAISER

Timeraiser is a silent art auction where attendees bid volunteer time, not dollars, for original art. In addition to supporting emerging artists (each work of art is purchased at market price), Timeraiser helps foster and celebrate volunteerism nationally and in local communities.

With MEÆT, we come together to make the funding decisions ourselves, now.  Applying for a grant is intentionally simple to encourage broad participation and rapid impact.
