Six Finalists Named for Two 2015 Grants

We are proud to announce the six nonprofit organizations, selected from more than 70 applicants,  that have reached our list of finalists:

  • The Arc of Somerset County (Manville)

  • Head Start Community Program of Morris County Inc. (Dover)

  • Fairleigh Dickinson University STEM Academy (Teaneck/targeting high school students in Paterson)

  • Lake Hopatcong Foundation (Lake Hopatcong)

  • Morris County Prevention Is Key, Inc. (MCPIK) (Rockaway)

  • New Jersey Development Corporation FreePair Paterson program (Paterson)

These finalists were selected by Impact 100 members serving on our five grant category committees who reviewed all applications–with input from Impact 100’s Finance Review Committee–and conducted selected site visits. They worked long hours during the summer months. Our thanks to them!

The six finalists will present their proposed programs at Impact 100 Garden State’s annual meeting on November 4 at 6 p.m. at The Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge.  Members, voting by absentee ballot or in person that evening, will determine the two recipients. Each will receive a grant of $102,500. The grant recipients will be announced that night.

Congratulations to our finalists–and our deep appreciation to all the nonprofits who applied to Impact 100 Garden State for a 2015 grant.  So much great work is being done in our communities. Impact 100 members applaud all your efforts.
