Impact 100 Chicago

September 2019 Newsletter

I am so excited for the start of our 10 th year of making an Impact in the Chicagoland area!  In the past 9 years we have injected approximately $3 Million into the non-profit community helping them boost their organizations impact. Just imagine what our next decade will help fund!
Our Grant Cycle is open and non-profits in the Chicago suburbs can submit Letters of Inquiry (LOI) until September 27.  Member sign up for the 2019-2020 Grant year will continue until December 31.  Signups for the Grant Review Committees will be opened at the beginning of November and meetings will begin in mid January.
With a new year, there are changes to our Board of Directors.  I would like to welcome Tracy Leiser as our Treasurer.  Tracy has served as co-FRC chair for several years.  I want to express my sincere thanks to Sue Randall for all she did the past several years as the Membership Chair.  We will miss your enthusiasm on the board!  As I mentioned at the Grant Award Celebration, we are always looking for women to serve on the Board, and GRC/FRC chairs.  Please contact me if you are interested!
