Geneseo Is For Tomorrow

Top 10 Reasons to Join TGF

  1. Let Your Voice Be Heard – TGF enables you to voice your opinion in a safe and non-judgmental environment. You are the future of our community and we want to hear what you have to say!

  2. Know Your Community – Meetings will often be held at different not-for-profit organizations and you will have an opportunity to learn about agencies you never knew existed.

  3. Make Grants – Experience the responsibilities that come with making funding decisions and feel good about awarding $2,500 - $5,000 or more to various local not-for-profit organizations. This is not fundraising; you will be giving money away.

  4. Make a Difference – The grants you make impact the community as a whole. Your decisions can potentially fund an entire after-school program, keep a child safe from an abusive environment or support local arts and culture initiatives. Help shape the future of our community!

  5. Network – You have the opportunity to meet and work side-by-side with fellow students, volunteers, community leaders and many very caring and grateful people.

  6. Enhance Your Skills – Communication, leadership and teamwork skills are vital to your life and future career. Enhance your skills through training opportunities and presentations by local business professionals.

  7. Volunteer – Learn what it takes to be a contributing member of your community and see how your time, talents and efforts help not-for-profit organizations keep their doors open.

  8. Pay it Forward – By donating your time and talent to the TGF program, you are more likely to get involved in community service activities throughout your lifetime.

  9. Build Your Self-Worth – Using your unique skills, you will work with others to make decisions that will have a positive impact on the lives of many people.

  10. Lead by Example – Imagine if your commitment and caring influenced just 3 other people to step up to help make a difference, and then those 3 each influenced 3 more on down the line.

The seeds you plant will create generations of giving - and you will change the world.
