HAPPY HOLIDAYS from  Impact 100 Chicago!

  November was a busy month as we processed through all our Letters of Inquires and notified the nonprofits which were selected to move forward to the Full Grant application. Our membership committee has been working very hard to secure members especially given the change in calendar. If you have not already joined, please join today! If you have joined, please pass the word along to your friends. They can still be involved in the process come January!

I wish each of you and your family a wonderful holiday season. I'm so grateful to be a part of such a great organization that keeps making an impact in our communities.

Happy Holidays!

The initial stage of the Grant Cycle has been completed. 101 Non-profits submitted Letters of Inquiry which were reviewed by the four Grant Review Committees. After much discussion, ranking, and rating, twenty-six nonprofits were invited to submit Full Grant Applications. These Full Grant applications are due by Friday, December 14th. Chairs of the Grant Review Committees will alert their committee members when those applications are ready for review, and the next round of committee meetings will begin in mid January.

Thank you to all of the committee members and the committee chairs for their thoughtful consideration of the Non-profit LOIs. Your time and energy is what makes our model successful.
