The Next Generation

“Get ’em while they’re young” is the motto of these six philanthropic leaders – all heads of young giving societies for some of the area’s most prominent cultural institutions. These ladies implement fundraising, educational, and volunteer activities to increase public interest; connect young professionals who share similar cultural passions; assist their institutions’ fundraising goals; and throw some of the city’s best soirées.
