President's Message
"If we do not share what we have been given, then the gift was never truly received. Every gift given is meant to be passed along." Carrie Gress
Donna Broderick
The most exciting time of the Impact 100 cycle is here! We are less than two weeks away from the Annual Awards Celebration, when Impact 100 will award FOUR grants of $101,500 each!  These grants will enable four organizations to transform lives through breakthrough projects.  We are able to award these grants ONLY because we have generous, passionate members who are willing to share the gifts they have been given in order to make a difference in our community. You are The Power of Women IMPACTing our Community!
Each of our seven Finalists has proposed an amazing project that has the potential to make a lasting impact in our community.  Our Finalists and the programs/projects they have proposed are (in the order they established):
ST. FRANCIS SERAPH MINISTRIES with CENTER FOR RESPITE CARE- proposing the Dinner Club & Kitchenette project.


THE CENTER FOR GREAT NEIGHBORHOODS OF COVINGTON - proposing the Creative Commons project.
CHATFIELD COLLEGE - proposing the Central & Liberty Green Space project.

WOMEN'S CRISIS CENTER - proposing Green Dot Violence Prevention program.

NORTHERN KENTUCKY COMMUNITY ACTION COMMISSION (NKCAC)- proposing the Lincoln Grant Scholar House (LGSH) project.

GREATER CINCINNATI CONSTRUCTION FOUNDATION - proposing the Constructing a Pathway out of Poverty program.
All seven of our Finalists have been chosen after thorough review but your sister members are very strong candidates making our choice a very difficult one - selecting only four of these to fund. Yet I am sure that the four chosen will definitely have a positive impact on our community!
I hope you can join us for the 15th Annual Awards Celebration (AAC) on September 13th at the Cintas Center. Always the highlight of the Impact 100 year, you will hear the Finalists speak and can then cast your vote. This is a great time to meet and network with other Impact 100 members and guests, enjoy a delicious meal, and then see which organizations are awarded our Four 2016 Grant Awards.  You won't want to miss the excitement!
Please consider bringing a guest to the Annual Awards Celebration to share your passion for Impact 100. This event is a great opportunity for family, friends and colleagues who may be interested in joining Impact 100 to see and hear for themselves what a difference Impact 100 has made in our community. If we can increase our membership contribution to $500,000 - next year we would be able to award transformational grants to FIVE Finalists!  Through your help we can reach this goal!
If you are unable to attend the Annual Awards Celebration on September 15th, please vote via absentee ballot.  We value you input and want all of our members to vote!!
Please remember to register for our 15th Annual Awards Celebration and invite your friends today!!!  

  All the best,
Donna Neyer Broderick
Impact 100 President
