Nile Rodgers

 Celebrates 70th Birthday
with
 $1 Million Endowment to
We Are Family Foundation
 

Youth To The Front Fund 2022
 “Frontliners” Announced

Musical icon and philanthropist, Nile Rodgers, is celebrating his 70th birthday and the 20th anniversary of his 
We Are Family Foundation
 (WAFF) with a
 $1 million endowment gifted to WAFF.

Rodgers’ gift is an important personal investment to ensure solidifying the longevity of WAFF and its programs for future generations.
 

Rodgers, Co-Founder & Chairman, WAFF stated,

"My mother used to say, 'It's better to give than to receive.'

I knew the best thing I could do to celebrate my 70th birthday and the 20th anniversary of WAFF was to provide a million-dollar endowment to sustain the foundation’s important work.

Our Global Teen Leaders and Youth To The Front Fund “Frontliners” give us their all and this is the least I can do to continue supporting them."

Committed to fighting systemic racism, inequality and injustice,
 WAFF is also pleased to announce the

 
2022 Youth To The Front Fund
“Frontliners”
,

representing 7 states in the USA and 15 countries on 6 continents.

WAFF created the Youth To The Front Fund (YTTFF) in 2020 to support under 30-year-old BIPOC-centered youth activists, youth-led organizations, projects, innovations and creative solutions at the forefront of fighting systemic racism, inequality and injustice.

 The 2022 Frontliners’ work in the USA, and around the globe,

is funded through generous contributions from

 WAFF’s Board of Directors 
and its partners, 

SAPSony Music Group,
 and the

 Walton Family Foundation.

The 2022 Frontliners, aged 18 to 29, are using their creativity and infusing science, art, technology and social justice into their project design and overall implementation to collectively reimagine new possibilities and solutions that positively impact and shape future generations. 

Frontliners’ projects focus on: 
Civic & Community Engagement,
 Education Equity,
 Climate Justice,
and Criminal Justice Reform.
