Generation IMPACT

United Way's Generation IMPACT is a philanthropy-driven group dedicated to promoting leadership and community involvement among local young professionals. Members of Generation IMPACT are tasked with allocating the United Way's annual Social Innovation Fund, which supports student-led innovative projects that address some of the most pressing challenges in our community.



The mission of Generation IMPACT is to lead sustainable change by developing future community impact leaders, fostering social innovation, and promoting civic engagement in Volusia and Flagler Counties. 


Social Innovation Fund:

Generation IMPACT manages the UWVFC Social Innovation Fund, which provides local high school, college, or vocational school students with mini grants in order to implement innovative projects that address critical challenges in Flagler and/or Volusia counties. 

The inaugural Social Innovation Fund process is currently underway. Learn more about the Social Innovation Fund process here!
