President's Message - The Impact 100 of My Dreams is....
The Impact 100 Board spent a large part of our annual retreat imagining what the Impact 100 of our dreams is/does. With the 20th anniversary of our inception just 12 months away, this is the perfect time to dream big, think broadly, & share boldly.

There's Still Time to Join A Committee!
It's not too late to join a Focus Area Committee or one of our other standing committees.

Young Philanthropist and DEI Mixer
Impact 100 is committed to growing a membership that is reflective of our 10-county region, including diversity of age, race, & zip code. Join us for a Young Philanthropist (<40 years old) and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Mixer to learn about Impact 100, hear from a grant recipient, and learn about the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Young Philanthropist Program.

We Fund Overhead, Yes We Do!
....We fund overhead; how 'bout you? 
Before this year's Big Reveal, nearly 100 women joined Impact 100 and Grants Plus to learn about the Impact 100 process, grant review, and "philanthropy myths." For example, one myth is that Impact 100 does not fund overhead. If we didn't fund overhead, how would our nonprofit partners get their important work done?!

Ever Considered Applying for the
Torch Award?
Receiving the Torch Awards in 2019 gave Impact 100 the chance to assess our operations and decision-making -- to determine what we're doing and how we are operating is right. It's more than recognition; it's a chance to reflect on your ethics. Less than 100 local businesses and nonprofits hold this honor — is this your year?
