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. If your organization is applying for a Focus Area Grant, or if there is a conflict of interest with your organization and the Focus Area selected for the grant cycle, then you may not participate on the Focus Area Grant Review committee.
