June Newsletter 2019
Meet our 2019 Grant Finalists!
This past week, Impact 100 has been celebrating! The Focus Area Committees have completed their work of selecting the 2019 Grant Finalists and our Community Investment Review Committee (CIRC) has confirmed the financial viability of the organizations and grant proposals.  

As a result, on June 27th, at Ohio Valley Voices with over 200 guests, we were delighted to announce our six 2019 Grant Finalists. 

Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Young Philanthropists
At Meet the Finalists, we welcomed our largest class yet: six young women have been named the 2020 Charlotte R. Schmiddlapp Young Philanthropists: Tess Brown, Myra Ballentine, Brooke Megenhardt, Nickol Mora, Erika Svirnovskiy, and Daphney Thomas. Thanks to 110% members, Amazon Smile users, Charlotte R. Schmidlapp, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee, and donor, Ben Savage (in memory of Martha Savage) for support of this program. 

Women’s Philanthropy Conference Opportunity
Impact 100 is an active member of Catalist, a network of women’s collective giving groups across the nation. Catalist is hosting a conference and several of our members are involved in the planning, and we’d love for you to attend! Join PowerUP!

Check out these three plenary speakers already lined up to inform and inspire!

30 Short Days – 30 Great Accomplishments
Do you ever wonder what’s happening behind the scenes with Impact 100? It all happens because of the power of women volunteers, together! We thought it might be fun to shine a light on 30 mission-centric accomplishments in the 30 days of June. Things you might not even think of…. 

Have You Saved the Date? September 12 
We hope you can join us for the Annual Awards Celebration (AAC) on September 12th at Music Hall to learn from our Grant Finalists, cast your vote, network with other Impact 100 members and our generous sponsors, enjoy a meal, and see which organizations are awarded our 2019 Grants of $109,000 each!  
Interested in Impact 100 Volunteer Leadership?  
A robust nominating process is how Impact 100 ensures shared leadership, planned turnover, and a healthy pipeline of interested women on the Board of Directors. 100% of your membership donation goes to the grants….so this working board ensures the organization is in tip-top-shape. (Yes, you can nominate yourself!)
