Twin Lakes Future Fund

What is a Future Fund?

The Twin Lakes Future Fund is a way for young professionals to give back to their communities. It doesn’t take great wealth, and it doesn’t require a huge time commitment. It’s an opportunity for young people to pool their charitable dollars and collectively identify and support charities and causes they care about.

The Twin Lakes Future Fund was started in 2012 by Twin Lakes Community Foundation. The concept of the Future Fund is to educate a younger audience about philanthropy (giving) and engage young leaders. The foundation provides the means and the vehicle to help obtain its mission. An anonymous donor has graciously provided a $5,000 challenge grant to help establish the Future Fund Endowment.
