Inaugural Next Gen retreat which included Trustees, Next Gen Committee and other family members. A very important aspect of the Foundation’s giving is the practice of ensuring that all grandchildren in the family are educated in and appreciate the need for giving back to the community.
We have a 12 member Next Generation Committee to engage and educate our youth in service to the foundation. The committee exists to cultivate an understanding of philanthropy and build leadership skills in the next generations. Our board is committed to actively listening to all generations offering opportunities, education, and support to fulfill the Florence and Laurence Spungen Family Foundation vision for the family.
There are a variety of ways that the Next Generation are involved, including via grantmaking, site visits, and volunteerism. Every year, each member is given an opportunity to research and fund a charity of interest to him or her.
