After the grant applications were reviewed and site visits conducted, Finalists recorded their messages and members cast their ballots.  Then on September 8, the Grant Recipients were announced at the Annual Awards Celebration. Each Recipient received a grant of $103,750.
The four Grant Recipients and their projects are:

This project will provide onsite summer programming to serve ~ 160 middle school students in partnership with the North College Hill Schools to help close the achievement gap, provide ongoing mentorship and increase future enrollments in college.  
On behalf of all our members, we’d like to congratulate this year’s Grant Recipients and thank them for their creativity, their hard work, and all they do for our community.  We can’t wait to see what they do with these transformative grants.
After the grants were announced, Impact 100 celebrated hitting the $6 million dollar milestone. That’s right – over $6 million dollars invested in our community with the help of over 50 nonprofit partners. What an amazing way to celebrate our 20th Anniversary!!
We look forward to the next 20 years of working together to transform our community.
