Impact 100 Garden State is proud to be able to support our community through grant making. Our members make all the difference through the donation of their time, money, creativity, and voice to make our organization thrive. Whether you want to serve on a team, or contribute a few hours, there are numerous volunteer opportunities available. Because 100% of your membership contribution goes towards grants, the donations of members, friends and sponsors, including local businesses, help to offset our administrative costs. These include website hosting, mailing, printing, insurance and member events. Here’s how you can help:
