Does Impact 100 fund current operating or overhead expenses?
No, Impact 100 grants are meant to be transformational. While the definition of transformational varies among members, we will not fund an organization initiative unless it expands programming or delivers services in a new way. An appropriate funding request for Impact 100 would be for services performed in a new way (innovation), more services of the same kind provided more often to their current population (deepening), or expanding their current service to a new population (expansion). Impact 100 would expect the budget to reflect such, which could include additional staff & their resultant operating costs or other capital requests. Please also see FAQ on “new impacts.”
