Members always ask how we run Impact so efficiently and professionally. The answer - it takes a village, and we have an impressive village! Many members support us through in-kind donations with their time and talent, without which we could not exist!  But it also takes financial support to assure that we continue to fulfill our joint mission of educating women about philanthropy and funding our nonprofit community.
