After serious consideration and following the recent increase in cases of the coronavirus in the Greater Cincinnati area, we have made the difficult decision to virtually host Impact 100’s Annual Award Celebration (AAC), scheduled for September 10th. We don’t make this decision lightly. The AAC is our pinnacle event: a night of learning from our Grant Finalists, connecting with fellow members and guests, and selecting the year’s Grant Recipients. In the coming days, we will roll out the details of the “Virtual AAC” where we will join together this year to celebrate our nonprofit finalists without putting anyone at risk.
On August 27, 2020 all full and half members will receive pre-recorded presentations and executive summaries for each of the 8 nonprofit grant finalists. After viewing the presentations, you will have an opportunity to cast your preferential ballot from August 27th through September 8th to select 4 grant recipients. The online ballot casting portal will close at noon on September 8th.
Join us on September 10th at 7:00 PM via a video link as we highlight all of our finalists, announce our Grant Recipients LIVE, and celebrate our collective impact in the region!
Please watch for the virtual AAC invitation and more details in the coming weeks about the event. There will be additional information shared ahead of the AAC to ensure all members are able to tune into the virtual event and see our milestone event come to fruition!
While the finalist video presentations and ballot casting will be separate from this year’s live event, there will still be ample celebration and education about the Grant Finalists! We have a team working hard to plan an exciting and inspiring event, so please spread the word about Impact 100’s transformational grant making efforts in our region. You are encouraged to invite your friends, family, and colleagues, as you have in the past, to share in this uplifting evening and to host a “Watch Party.” (See below for more details about this festive way to celebrate this milestone event.) We are counting on your participation to propel our impact forward into the community. We truly can’t do this without you.
Stay tuned for more details as we prepare to kick off the Virtual AAC this week!
