Bigger, Bolder, Better!

The record number of grant money to be given in 2021 was announced at the February 23 “I Love Impact” event.

Impact 100 Garden State is proud to announce that in 2021 we will donate $354,000 in grants to nonprofits in the counties we serve: Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Union.

Our organization welcomes 354 members for 2021—our largest number ever—including 73 brand-new members. Even during a pandemic year, Impact 100 GS’ collective giving model has continued to resonate and to attract members who want to make a difference in our communities.

We thank our members for your support, energy and passion for action, and we look forward to hearing your voices as we work together to make an impact.
