More than 200 members, prospective members, and nonprofit guests attended our fourth annual awards celebration. We mingled; laughed; listened; voted. And keynoter Wendy Steele motivated us to make even more high-impact grants in the future. Takeaway: next year we can reach the million dollar mark in our members’ cumulative giving. Let’s keep the momentum going.
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.
The five grants committees (Education, above) had done their work well; the seven finalists were all impressive. Our members voted and we are proud to announce our three recipients.
For the two $100,000 grants: Interfaith Food Pantry and Roots and Wings.
For the $44,000 grant: Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts.
Congratulations –and thanks–to all.
