America’s Grow-a-Row, which has been providing fresh healthy produce to those in need for 15 years, will honor Impact 100 Garden State at its annual Farm-to-Fork fundraising event on Saturday, May 6. In 2014, our members selected America’s Grow-a-Row (AGAR) and the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown as the recipient of a $100,000 collaborative grant. We are proud of our role in helping AGAR fulfill its mission and we are delighted to receive this recognition.
We are very excited to announce that our membership total in 2017 has reached 282 women. That means we will be awarding two transformative grants totaling $282,000; it also means that in our five-year history we have collectively raised more than $1,000,000 for nonprofit programs. Thank you to Membership Co-Chairs, Molly Dunn and Sally Epstein (above), and to all our new and returning members. We could not have reached this important milestone without all of you.
This year Impact 100 Garden State will award two transformative grants, one each for $141,000, to support nonprofit programs focused on helping individuals in need in Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Sussex counties. The deadline for filing a completed online application is May 18, at 5pm. Grant Co-Chairs, Donna McNamara and Storm Rose (above), together with our focus area committees, are waiting to get to work. Good luck to all applicants.
