Record-breaking numbers for 2020
We're excited and awed by the many women who have joined Impact100 for the coming year:
Together, we'll award
in grants to six organizations in 2020. Wow! As we wrote to members last week:
Collective giving is a model that works; we believe that's why it appeals to so many of us. It empowers each of us to give more, make more of a difference, and contribute more effectively to vital programs and people in our region.
Impact100 Philadelphia's 2020 members range in age from
21 to at least 87
, and live throughout the five-county Philadelphia region and South Jersey. Many members live outside the region but want to support Philly nonprofits and choose to do so through Impact's collective grants and relying on local members' collective wisdom.
We're pleased that a very high percentage of last year's members
(over 80%) and the jump in
is among the highest we've ever had (an increase of more than 30%). The number of Young Philanthropists (members 35 and younger) increased more than 40%, and we now have 54 Young Philanthropists among our 451 members.
