The Future Fund
The Future Fund is a giving circle for Charlottesville-area young professionals. Created in 2009 and housed within the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, the purpose of the Future Fund is to encourage people in their 20s, 30s and 40s to engage in philanthropy.
Future Fund members pool their dollars, choose a theme, and award grants annually by a group vote.}
