You’re Not Too Late to Get Involved

In the last month, Impact 100 members have been busy with strategic planning at an annual Board Retreat, ensuring continued fiscal responsibility through the Finance Committee, revising the New Member Liaison Program, and reviewing Focus Area Committee Letters of Intent from the nonprofit community.  Volunteers are planning the annual Educational (EDU) Event on April 12 as well as inviting members to become more involved, should you choose!
Short on time today?  Check out (& share!) this short explainer video on the current status of the Impact 100 grant review process and how you can help.

Since the Grant Focus Area Committees have reviewed and narrowed the field of nonprofit applicants in January & February, the nonprofits were invited to submit a full Grant Application this week.  The Focus Area Committees are now in recess while the invited agencies prepare their Grant Applications.

As noted in the video, this next step of our Grant Review Process provides all members with an excellent opportunity to join a Grant Focus Area Committee.  When the committees resume work in late March, they will begin with team building and welcome new and seasoned members.  If you are interested in your voice being heard, review & select a committee at  www.impact100.org/volunteer.  Various days and times are available. 

This year, each Focus Area will select up to two grant proposals to present to the Board.  A Finalist Selection Committee will select 6-7 Finalists from these proposals, to be announced to the community in June. The Finalists will present their proposals at the Annual Awards Celebration in September for one of our 4 grant recipients.
Looking forward to seeing you at a Focus Area Committee or at the April 12 EDU Event!
