The most exciting month of the Impact 100 year is finally here!

We are less than two weeks away from the Annual Awards Celebration at Music Hall, when Impact 100 will award FOUR grants of $104,000 each.  These grants will support four organizations in growing  or starting initiatives through program expansion and/or capital dollars to support nonprofit breakthrough initiatives.  Impact 100 can invest these grants because of passionate members like you; committed to making a difference in our community.

Our Finalists and the projects they have proposed are (order established by a blind draw):

Outdoor Adventure Clubs of
Greater Cincinnati

Outdoor Adventure Clubs for At-Risk Youth

Read more about the six Grant Finalists on the Impact 100 Blog, or check out more details regarding Executive Summaries below.  While it will be challenging for our members to select only four of these initiatives to fund, I’m certain that those Grant Recipients will have a positive Impact in our community!

I hope you can join us for the Annual Awards Celebration (AAC) on September 13th. Did you know that over 80% of our members note a “referral” to Impact 100 from another member?  Please help us continue to keep a warm and invitational nature for the AAC and other events: all are welcome!
