Happy 20th Anniversary Impact 100! 
 
As we begin this new year, we’re happy to celebrate Impact 100’s 20th Anniversary with the announcement that we have $413,000 in grant money to award this year. This brings the 20-year total invested in our community to $6 million.
What an amazing achievement!!
 
It has been a true joy to witness the variety of programs that have received Impact 100 grants, and to experience the lasting impact these grants have had on the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky community.
 
As this year gets underway, we’d like to invite all our members to get involved in Impact 100.  There are many wonderful opportunities . . . 
·      You can join a Focus Area Committee to review Letters of Intent and Grant Applications.  We have received 82 creative Letters of Intent – so these committees have an exciting time ahead. These Committees are getting started NOW  – so Please SIGN UP ASAP!
·      You can join the CIRC Committee – to review the financial state of applicants and their ability to receive and manage a grant.
·      You can join a Standing Committee – Diversity/Equity & Inclusion, Recruiting, Membership, or Communications.  These committees all provide exciting opportunities for members to get to know each other while having a positive impact on the community.
·      Finally, if a Committee isn’t a good fit for you, you can volunteer for a “One-And-Done” task – a great way to get to know and interact with other members.
 
In early February, the new Impact 100 Board will create the Strategic Plan that will guide our organization over the next 3-5 years.  If you have input you would like to see considered, please let us know (president@impact100.org).  We would love to hear from you.
 
We look forward to “seeing” Impact 100 members throughout the year – “virtually” at the start of the year – and hopefully in person towards the end of the year.
 
Warm Regards,
 
Sharon Janosik Mitchell and Annemarie Henkel
