Impact 100 Announces FOUR 2015 Grant Recipients
At a packed reception of ~ 400 members and guests at Manor House, Impact 100 announced the FOUR 2015 Grant Recipients. Each organization received a $101,000 grant to fund a significant, transformative project. This is the first time ever that Impact 100 awarded FOUR grants in a single year, and it takes the organization’s total giving to $3.2 Million.
The four Grant Recipients and their projects are:
FREESTORE FOODBANK: Healthy Harvest Mobile Market project
The grant will promote healthy eating through the purchase of a mobile market that will sell fresh produce in the Greater Cincinnati region, reaching families which do not have access to fresh, nutritious foods.
ACTIVITIES BEYOND THE CLASSROOM: Hughes High School Recreation Center project
The grant will renovate the empty Krueck Center pool space at Hughes High School into a vibrant athletic facility for the school’s extracurricular programs, which can also be used as a community recreation center.
MAY WE HELP: Workshop Equipment Purchase project
The grant will purchase machinery for the newly renovated workshop to facilitate the design and manufacture of assistive devices for those living with special needs, enabling the creation of over 100 unique devices per year.
SUPPORTS TO ENCOURAGE LOW INCOME FAMILIES (SELF): Build-up Academy project
The grant will double the capacity of the Build-Up Academy program which trains, educates and mentors under/unemployed young adults so they can gain employment in the construction field.
