President's Message

Donna Broderick

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual. Vince Lombardi

As we celebrate the independence of our nation this week we look back and celebrate those individuals who collectively worked together to define our nation.

At Impact 100, the combined efforts of many allow us to celebrate as well! The Focus Area Committees have completed their work of selecting the Grant Finalists, and CIRC (Community Investment Review Committee) has completed its work of confirming the financial viability of the Finalist proposals.
As a result, on June 27th, at the Hotel Covington, we were delighted to announce our seven Grant Finalists. 

The seven Finalists are:

Ohio Valley Voices - proposing the Audiology Clinic Expansion

Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission - proposing the Lincoln Grant Scholar House project.

St. Joseph Home - proposing the St. Joseph Home Green Space project

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company - proposing the Education Program Expansion

Lighthouse Youth & Family Services - proposing   the Agricultural Learning Center, Lighthouse Community School

Children's Home of Northern Kentucky - proposing the Technology Upgrade to Support Improved Healthcare Treatment

First Step Home - proposing The Terry Schoenling Home for Mothers and Infants Program

We applaud all the vibrant, creative nonprofit agencies that applied. A total of over 100 Letters of Intent and Grant Applications were reviewed before narrowing down the list to these seven inspirational programs/projects.

We hope you can join us for the Annual Awards Celebration (AAC) on September 12 th .  This event is the highlight of the Impact 100 year - the chance for you to listen to the Finalists speak about the transformation they hope to bring to reality with the award of a grant. The chance to cast your vote, network with other Impact 100 members and our generous sponsors, enjoy a delicious meal, and see which organizations are awarded our 2017 Grant Awards.  You won't want to miss this Awards Celebration - we will award FOUR grants of $101,000 each!!

You can help us make a difference in the community by inviting your friends, family and colleagues to attend the AAC. When you share your passion for the work Impact 100 does you are our best source for bringing in new members, you are Creating an IMPACT in our Community Together. We thank you for your help!

Please remember to register for the Annual Awards Celebration (you will receive an invitation by email mid July), and invite your friends today!!!  

All the best,
Donna Neyer Broderick
President, Impact 100

Your Membership in Action! 
  2016 Grant Recipient - Cincinnati  Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship

Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding & Horsemanship (CTRH) just purchased the first of two wild mustangs for the WORTH program using Impact funds. They also have started building the corrals for the mustangs.  Pictured are Steve Rasfeld, CTRH's Facilities Manager, and  Tammy Brockman, CTRH's Executive Assistant. They built the
corrals  themselves! As Rob Seideman, ED, states "We're a non-profit, of course, so we
wear all sorts of hats"!  Tammy also grills for the veterans' graduations and repairs all of their  broken appliances and equipment!

The horse purchased is a 2 year old mare, 14 hands high. She was captured in Cedar
Mountain HMA, Utah on February 16, 2017 and a beautiful Red Dun color. Currently she is traveling to Ewing, Il. and will be picked up by CTRH as soon as the Bureau of Land Management lets them know she is ready. At that time, they are hoping to select their second wild mustang!
