Application Process



Impact 100 accepts Letters of Intent (LOI) from nonprofit organizations that serve clients in the ten counties outlined below. Applications that are programmatic, capital, start-up, or research-oriented will be considered. We regret that we cannot accept any of the following types of applications: endowment, existing operating costs, partisan activities, completed projects, individual churches, indigent care subsidy, travel, loans, pass-through funds, or for individuals. In addition, the agency must have 501(c)(3) status with the IRS.
Each nonprofit organization must indicate one grant focus area. This is your choice as Impact 100 feels you best know your project/program for which you are requesting funding. Additional information can be found at Grant Focus Area.
Our five grant focus areas are:
  • Culture
  • Education
  • Environment, Preservation & Recreation
  • Family
  • Health & Wellness

Our ten county service area includes:

  • Ohio – Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, Warren
  • Kentucky – Boone, Campbell, Kenton
  • Indiana – Dearborn

Once all submitted LOI’s have been reviewed, each focus area will then request a Common Grant Application from select agencies they feel are viable candidates for the Impact 100 Grant. All agencies will be notified of their status by February 21, 2017. Please see our grant timeline to the right.

Impact 100 utilizes the Cincinnati Common Grant Application.  The Common Grant Application is due by March 24, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. noon.

After all applications have been reviewed, each grant focus area will determine which organizations they would like to visit. Those agencies not selected for a site visit will be notified by May 19, 2017. After additional internal review, each grant focus area will select a finalist who will present their project at the Impact 100 Annual Awards Celebration. The membership will vote and winners announced that evening.
