Going Paperless!
We heard you! As an organization that awards a grant each year to a nonprofit concerned with environmental issues, the Impact100 Philadelphia Annual Meeting will "walk the walk" and Go Paperless  this year.

You can expect to receive finalists' Full Proposals, Executive Summaries, and Site Visit reports via email, as usual. When you arrive at the meeting on June 3, you will be given a paper ballot clipped to your nametag—these two items will be the only paper you'll receive. Different from previous years, you will not receive a bag with a program, Count-Me-In card, explanation of Things to Keep in Mind when voting, or any other printed materials. Much of the information that previously appeared in these documents will be included as part of a slide presentation throughout the meeting, during all but the Finalist presentations.

We are excited to be able to put our ideals into practice in this way and look forward to celebrating our grant recipients with you on June 3 from 6 until 9 at the Crystal Tea Room at The Wanamaker Building.
  • May 23 - Bridges to Peace Tour, 12:45-2pm, Langhorne. Open to all.
  • June 3 - Save the Date! Annual Meeting, 6-9pm at Crystal Tea Room, Center City. Look for your email invite on May 7.
  • June 12 - Lunch & Learn, 12-1pm at Kismet Manayunk, 4230 Main Street, Philadelphia. For prospective members.

Member Spotlight: Susan and Ally Wirshba
Meet the Wirshbas, a dynamic mother-daughter duo at Impact100 Philadelphia.
Susan and her daughter Ally are one of a handful of mother-daughter combos at Impact100 Philadelphia. Susan, a Haverford resident, joined Impact100 Philadelphia in 2010, after her family relocated to the area. She encouraged Ally to join as a Young Philanthropist. This is Ally’s first grant cycle. “I love being able to be a part of an organization with my Mom where we share a common goal of engaging in philanthropy!” said Ally.

As Susan became more involved with Impact100 Philadelphia, she was excited to share her experience with Ally. Ally had attended events as a guest with her mom, including the Annual Meeting. “This special event at the end of the grant cycle is what really opened my eyes to Impact’s mission and what it means to the Philadelphia area’s non-profit community,” said Ally. “Sharing in this experience with my Mom and seeing all of the hard work that Focus Area Committee, Board, and other committee members put into choosing which organizations will receive grants made me realize I want to be part of this great organization.”
