Next Gen Engagement Strategies: Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation Case Study

Publication date: 
04/01/2014

The Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation was founded in 1999, and began formal grantmaking for educational programs in 2003. The youngest family members were always welcomed at board meetings, which were typically held at family residences and often during school vacations. After a few years of informal youth engagement, the family realized that something more formal was needed to engage the growing number of interested youth. The Junior Board was founded in 2006 as a way for the kids to learn about philanthropy and gain hands-on experience in grantmaking.
