About Fourth Generation: Fourth Generation, a program of The Minneapolis Foundation is the place for young professionals to learn about effective, meaningful charitable giving. Members pool their resources, learn about an issue in the community, make an investment in local nonprofits, and make a difference.
Whether you’re part of a family of givers, starting out on your own or you give with money, time or talents – Fourth Generation teaches skills to help you get the most out of your giving.
Last year, between member donations, matching gifts and proceeds from Graze 4 Good, Fourth Generation was able to grant $40,000 to local nonprofits working to empower small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. This year, we anticipate granting out close to $30,000 to local organizations that are working to provide resources to immigrant populations. If you would like to make an additional contribution towards the grant making efforts please donate here.

The amount of your Graze 4 Good ticket that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limed to the excess of your ticket price over the value of goods or services provided by The Minneapolis Foundation. For this event, the value of the good or services received is $20 per General Grazing ticket and $45 per VIP ticket.
