As a result of the Covid-19 public health crisis, we are adjusting our membership engagement, outreach and recruiting approach as ensuring our members’ safety is a top priority.
We’re excited to soon award $341,000 at our virtual 2020 Annual Awards Meeting, preserving our democratic model of members voting on where the funding goes.
And until it is safe again to hold in-person events, we are happy to begin offering virtual ways to keep us connected. Impact members; please visit our Member Portal for more info. Or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help us with engagement and recruitment. We welcome your participation, at any level!
Amidst the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Impact 100 Garden State grant committees have continued their evaluations of this year’s grant applicants.
The process is moving forward with flexibility and safety adjustments necessary because of the virus. As part of that process, all of the sixteen semi-finalists have been asked to submit information concerning how their organization has been affected by the pandemic and how it has affected their ability to implement the program for which they applied.
Additionally, the Impact 100 Garden State Leadership Team has voted to cancel the in-person Annual Awards Meeting on June 17 at the Park Avenue Club and will hold the meeting virtually. More information to follow.
The five grant committees, consisting of 75 impact members, are currently engaged in virtual site visits with the 16 organizations that are this year’s semi-finalists.
The proposals from the 16 semi-finalist organizations are focused on a wide range of needs in our communities.
Once the site visits and financial reviews are complete, the grant review committees will convene to review the nominees and select their finalists.
Finalists will be notified during the first week of June.
