NextGen Genealogy Network has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
As we look to the future of the NextGen Genealogy Network, we need your help. We are committed to the mission of building connections between all generations, providing resources to promote the next generation’s engagement in the genealogical community, and offering innovative, virtual opportunities for development. To implement various projects and programs, we are asking for our members show their support on #GivingTuesday with a donation to NextGen.
“We are excited about the next chapter of NextGen and building upon our growing virtual community. We want to empower the next generation of genealogists with educational webinars, conference stipends, and other programmatic initiatives that are member focused and member driven,” said Beth Wylie, NextGen Genealogy Network Leadership Team member.“ In order to take NextGen to the next level, we are asking for our members to gift $50, $25, or any amount of their choosing, so that we may continue implementing worthy projects that fulfill our mission.”
“NextGen is an all-volunteer run organization that strives to be open and accessible to all young genealogists. As such, we need your support now more than ever to facilitate new and innovative programming.” said Kristin Britanik, Outreach Coordinator for NextGen Genealogy Network Leadership Team.
