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.
Our grant cycle is moving into its final stages. More than 70 members spent summer days evaluating applications. Site visits will be completed in September and finalists announced in early October. Presentations and voting for recipients of our two $100,000 grants and one $44,000 grant, will take place on November 2 at the Olde Mill Inn, Basking Ridge, at 6pm.
