Thank you so much!

2014 Is Headed Into Our History Book!

 

We have reached a grand total of 185 members, a 37% increase over 2013.  To our many returning members, thank you for your continuing support. And to our new members, welcome!

We are announcing today two transformative grants for our 2014 Grant Year:

$100,000

and

$85,000

Non-profit organizations operating in Morris, Passaic, Somerset and/or Sussex counties are eligible to apply.  Details and the 2014 Grant Application are now posted. The deadline for applications is May 16. Enthusiastic and trained teams of  our members are standing by to evaluate applications in the five grant categories.  After all our 185 members have the opportunity to vote on the finalists, we will announce the two recipients on October 8.

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. The powerful communal experience of creating handmade art from old combat fatigues assists veterans’ recovery from the physical, emotional, and psychological pain of combat. We are proud that Combat Paper NJ, the finalist in the Arts and Culture grant category, was our first grant recipient. More at  www.printnj.org/combat-paper

And we are excited that the 2014 process has begun.  We look forward to awarding two transformative grants in October.  Watch these pages for updates as our grant season moves forward!
