What a night! Annual Awards Celebration Recap 
On September 12, 2019, with almost 500 people in attendance we announced our 2019 grant recipients, received the “keys to the city” & so much more! 

In Your Words
Earlier this year, members and nonprofit grant recipients were asked what made Impact 100 special or unique to them. It was these very words that created Mayor John Cranley’s Proclamation while handing the Keys to the City to Impact 100 at the Annual Awards Celebration. 

Member Spotlight: Myra LalDin 
 What Do Impact 100 and Forbes Have in Common?  
Myra is one of our 2020 Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Young Philanthropists! Not only is she part of our Impact 100 family but she’s also making a name for herself in the startup and business community! 

Giving Circle Infrastructure Initiative
As part of its campaign to strengthen, expand and diversify the movement of North American giving circles, a group of giving circle networks and leaders made 13 microgrants to a diverse set of collective giving organizations. Impact 100 Greater Cincinnati received funds to establish a vehicle for planned giving and develop an “Equity Champion Certificate.”
