2014 Announcements Coming Soon
The excitement is building……Our membership campaign has only a few weeks remaining. The deadline for all membership donations is March 31. If you haven’t yet joined us, visit our How to Join page and be part of the excitement.
What excitement? We now know that we will be able to make two transformative grants in 2014. The first will be for $100,000. The second will be for the funds raised over and above $100,000.
Help us make that second grant as large as we can. Join now!
In 2013, Impact 100 Garden State gave one grant of $135,000 to Combat Paper NJ, a veteran-led program that uses art as a tool to heal.

We are proud that Combat Paper NJ, the finalist in the Arts and Culture grant category, was our first grant recipient. This October, our members will select two grant recipients from among five grant categories: Arts and Culture; Children and Families; Education; Environment; Health and Wellness.
We will announce the final membership number on April 9.
You will know the amount of the second grant.
