2015 Membership Surpasses 200

Two Grants of $102,000 Each to be Awarded

We are delighted to announce that in 2015  our membership has reached 204 women. Impact 100 Garden State will award $204,000 in two equal grants–each for $102,000.

Thank you to all new and rejoining members. We so much appreciate your enthusiasm for our shared giving initiative and look forward to a wonderful grant season.  If you would like to join one of the grant committees, please contact Suzanne Herrmann or Christine DiCesare, our Grants Team, before April 30.

We welcome applications from nonprofit organizations that meet our eligibility criteria.  Please review our guidelines, our grant FAQs, and the 2015 grant application, which has now been posted.

We have scheduled three information sessions in different geographic locations for nonprofit organizations that wish to better understand the Impact 100 Garden State grant process.  Attendance is not required, but in past years staff and leadership teams have found the sessions helpful.

Schedule of information sessions:

  • Monday, April 20, from 4:00p.m. to 5:30p.m. at the Bernardsville Public Library
  • Tuesday, April 28, from noon to 1:30p.m. at the Sussex County Office of the United Way of Northern NJ, Newton
  • Wednesday, April 29, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Preakness Branch of the Wayne Library
