Does my company (or my partner’s company) match funds?2020-12-28T14:42:09-05:00

If you work for a company that participates in a Matching Gift Program, you can join many Impact 100 members who take that extra step to support Women Together: Changing Lives. Participating in your company’s Matching Gift program is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Contact your Human Resources Office for eligibility requirements and to obtain a Matching Gift form. (Remember, many companies match the gifts of retirees, spouses, surviving spouses and outside directors.)
  2. Fill out the employee portion of the form completely.
  3. Send the form to Impact 100!
    Note: the criteria for which nonprofits qualify for a company match may differ by company; we encourage Impact 100 members to inquire with their employer!

Per our Policies & Procedures, Company Matching Gifts may be used as part of a Member’s donation to pay the difference between a half and a full Membership. If a member chooses to use a Company Match for part of her full Membership donation, she must pay the first $500 of the membership donation, notify Impact 100 of her planned intent, complete any forms required by the Matching Gift institution, and ensure that the balance of the funds are received by Impact 100 from the Matching Gift Institution by the Membership deadline. Such memberships are not transferable. If a Company Match is to match a Full membership that member still holds only one membership.

Below is a listing of companies that offer a matching program, and those in bold are companies which have already matched an Impact 100 member donation!

Per our Policies & Procedures, Company Matching Gifts may be used as part of a Member’s donation to pay the difference between a half and a full Membership. If a member chooses to use a Company Match for part of her full Membership donation, she must pay the first $500 of the membership donation, notify Impact 100 of her planned intent, complete any forms required by the Matching Gift institution, and ensure that the balance of the funds are received by Impact 100 from the Matching Gift Institution by the Membership deadline. Such memberships are not transferable. If a Company Match is to match a Full membership that member still holds only one membership.

Can I designate a membership in honor/memory of someone?2017-12-15T10:26:59-05:00

Yes.  A Full or 110% member may fund an additional full membership “In Honor Of” another individual – either living or deceased. This membership carries with it a vote on the Annual Awards Celebration ballot, and the member making the membership contribution may cast this ballot. A member may fund two “In Honor Of” memberships in addition to her own individual membership.

To initiate an “In Honor Of” membership click here and at the checkout form please designate the name and address of the individual who should be recognized.

Can I gift a membership to someone?2017-11-27T20:24:41-05:00

Yes. Members and others may gift an individual Impact 100 membership with all membership benefits. The donor of the gifted membership will pay the membership donation, designate the individual, and have no other rights associated with that membership.

To initiate a gift membership click here and at the checkout form complete the Gift Membership Information.

I want to give more than $1,000. Do I get more than one vote?2017-07-10T20:01:03-04:00

No. Every member gets one vote even if they give more than $1,000. Any amount given over $1,000 goes first to offset administrative costs. If we receive more money than we need to cover our administrative costs, our board of directors has the discretionary power to add that money to the grant funds.

I have a male friend who is interested in Impact 100. Can he participate?2017-07-10T20:34:16-04:00

Men can participate directly as a donor to Impact 100, or they can encourage and/or sponsor the women in their lives to participate as members.

If I’m unable to attend and vote at the annual meeting, can I still cast my vote?2017-07-10T20:03:12-04:00

Yes. Although we strongly encourage attendance at the meeting, you can vote by absentee ballot. Prior to the annual meeting, every member receives information on each finalist. Included in this information is an absentee ballot and instructions on how to cast your vote before the meeting if you’re unable to attend.

When do you award the grants?2017-07-10T20:03:24-04:00

We award grants at our Annual Meeting in September of each year.

How do you decide who receives the grants?2022-08-22T17:59:49-04:00

Each year, we accept grant applications in five Focus Areas: Culture; Education; Environment, Preservation & Recreation; Family; and Health & Wellness.  We form Grant Review Teams (GRT), made up of members. An Impact 100 member who has been trained in facilitating the grant review process chairs each GRT. The GRT evaluates accepted grant applications – by researching and visiting applicants – to become grant finalists. We deliver information on the finalists to each Impact 100 member for review. We then hold our Annual Awards Celebration (& Annual Meeting) in which the grant finalists give a short presentation. At that meeting, members vote to deliver a final decision on grant recipients. Each member has a voice of one vote based on their membership level; Full Members have one vote and Half Membership have one half of a vote.

Why does Impact 100 award a $100,000 lump sum to a single organization?2017-07-10T20:24:13-04:00

We want to make an extraordinary impact. By funding a large grant, we can make a significant impact in a selected area. For example, when a nonprofit receives $10,000 from 10 different grants, the nonprofit incurs reporting requirements and related administrative costs for each of those grants. By awarding one large grant of at least $100,000, we can have more impact and keep costs low for the grant recipient.

Can I refer a friend, colleague, family member, etc.?2017-07-10T20:04:33-04:00

Yes!  Please do!  Word of mouth is always the most effective way to help Impact 100 to award more grants, by increased membership.  Contact us today if you’d like us to reach out to someone you recommend to join Impact 100.

Why do we consider our grant recipients to be our Community Partners?2017-07-10T20:05:27-04:00

The relationship with our grant recipients is maintained over time. Once the grant is awarded, an Impact 100 Cincinnati member acts as a liaison with the recipient to administer the grant over time. The most common grant period is two years. Our Community Partners keep Impact 100 Cincinnati informed of the status of the grant program though progress updates and they provide us with a final report.

What is the Impact 100 “Conflict of Interest” policy?2017-07-10T20:25:05-04:00

We’re committed to acting with integrity in all of our relationships and in selecting grant recipients through an honest and fair process. In support of this commitment, our conflict of interest policy requires disclosure of relationships between our board and committee members with any grant applicant or potential grant applicant. We also require a board or committee member to recuse herself from the discussion and/or vote on any topic where a conflict arises.

We formally require only those members serving on our board or on a committee to disclose conflicts of interest. However, Impact 100 expects all members to act in an objective and fair manner. We expect all members to refrain from any attempt to gain an unfair advantage for a particular grant applicant by, among other things, disclosing confidential information and/or attempting to influence the vote of an Impact 100 member.
