Our Annual Awards Meeting has a new and exciting feature. Yes, we will hear from our 2016 grant finalists and vote. In addition, we will welcome Wendy Steele, creator of the original Impact 100 organization, in Cincinnati in 2001, as our honored guest and speaker. Wendy is a dynamic and inspirational presenter (watch Wendy’s Tedx talk on YouTube) and a national voice advocating for women’s philanthropy.
Be part of the extraordinary women of Impact 100. To date, we’ve raised over $750,000 for nonprofit grants focused on helping individuals in our local communities. Our goal for 2017 is 275 members and $275,000 in available grants. We’re on our way to reaching this goal. Join or renew today and help us expand our impact in 2017.
We are delighted to announce the seven finalists for this year’s grants. Congratulations to these wonderful nonprofit organizations and our deep appreciation to all who applied. Our thanks also to the more than 70 Impact volunteers who evaluated so many fine applications. Presentations and voting for recipients of the two $100,000 grants and one $44,000 grant, will take place at our Annual Awards Meeting on November 2.
