Tell me more about Impact100:
Impact100 Westchester is a women’s collective giving organization made up of 340+ dynamic, caring women. As of the end of our 7th year, we have awarded over $1.8 million to 42 local nonprofits. Our goal is to identify unmet needs in the region and provide transformational grants to Westchester nonprofit organizations.
Our membership model and grant cycle overview:
Important note: If you are a grant writer or employee of a nonprofit organization that applies for an Impact100 grant during a given grant cycle, you may not participate on any Grant Review committee (Transformational Project and Core Mission) or Finance committee, nor may you attend any first round site visits open only to Grant Review committee members.
Why become a member?
- multiply your dollars: we dramatically increase our power to address unmet needs when we pool our funds.
- address significant needs in Westchester County: although Westchester is very affluent, 10% of our neighbors live in poverty.
- you decide how involved you'd like to be: join a committee, participate in an educational session, be part of a day-of-service or just attend the Annual Meeting.
- meet like-minded, dynamic women: through our work evaluating nonprofit applications as a group, our connections with each other deepen and naturally lead to lasting professional relationships and friendships.
