Impact 100 Chicago


Intense love does not measure, 
it just gives.
- Mother Teresa

January was a busy month as we processed through all our Letters of Inquires and notified the nonprofits selected to move forward to the Full Grant application. The Impact 100 Chicago Board has been working hard to secure members for our 2020 giving season. 

 If you have not already joined, please join today! 
 If you have joined, please pass the word along to your family and friends. They can still be involved in the process and make an impact in our community! 

Ensure Your 2019/2020 Impact 100 Chicago Membership!

The initial stage of the Grant Cycle has been completed.  Suburban nonprofits submitted Letters of Inquiry which were reviewed by the four Grant Review Committees. After much discussion, ranking, and rating, 16 nonprofits were invited to submit Full Grant Applications. These Full Grant applications are due by Friday, February 21st. Chairs of the Grant Review Committees will alert their committee members when applications are ready for review, and GRCs will meet to determine site visit candidates by March 6th.

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

Thank You for Giving!
