President’s Message – June 2017

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand”. Woodrow Wilson

As we move into summer, I would like to extend my congratulations to all Impact 100 members who have celebrated a graduation recently as well as those who have had a son, daughter or grandchild graduate. As they now venture out into the world may their achievements enrich the world in addition to themselves.

The Grant review process is almost complete for 2017! Focus Area Committees have completed their site visits, chosen the finalists for their focus areas and passed these along to CIRC (Community Investment Review Committee) to verify their viability. We are grateful to all committee members who have donated their time to discern the strongest programs/projects. We look forward to presenting the finalists at our Meet the Finalists event on June 27th at Hotel Covington! Don’t forget to register yourself and invite a friend/colleague to introduce them to Impact 100.

Impact 100 was proud to partner with The Women’s Fund, Community Matters and WCPO for the May 11 Women Work: Making Communities Better Together event. The sold out crowd at Community Matters heard important research on the wage gap of women in the workplace as well as a personal testimony of one woman and her struggles in this area.

Your passion for Impact 100 is contagious! When you share your excitement and enthusiasm for Impact with friends/family over coffee or by bringing them to an Impact 100 event you are helping Impact 100 transform more lives. We have already begun recruiting for the 2018 season and YOUR help is important to continue investing in the community. We are grateful to you for sharing this opportunity with those you know.

We hope to see you on June 27th – when we meet our 2017 Grant Finalists, four of whom will be awarded one of our $101,000 grants!

Have a wonderful summer – filled with hope and vision, as well as time to just sit back and relax!
All the best,
Donna Broderick
President, Impact 100
