Hard to believe it was only 12 months ago that we were heading into a pandemic that has changed so many aspects of our daily life. And yet here we are, in March of 2021, having weathered many challenges that it brought, and knowing it isn’t over. One thing that has remained constant is the unflinching philanthropy of the women of Impact 100, united in the desire to make a difference. Against the odds, we have a 2021 membership of over 460 women who have funded four grants in the amount of $103,250 for this year! An unprecedented 26% of you gave at the 110% level, helping to offset the operational costs of running an all-volunteer organization of this size. Kudos to all the women of Impact 100! What an awesome and inspiring gift you all are to our community!
Now for a brief reminder about the importance of matching gifts. If you or your partner’s employer offers the benefit of matching a portion of your charitable giving, please consider designating your matching gift to Impact 100. These matching gifts go a long way to helping us cover operational costs (averaging $60,000 – 70,000 per year), and help us continue making transformative grants in our community. Many companies allow these requests to be submitted through March, and, in some cases, into April. Company matching gifts are a great way to support Impact 100’s philanthropic mission in 2021!
