Seeing Is Believing
The Impact100 Philadelphia Grants cycle is in full swing, with Focus Area Team members conducting site visits to 30 potential grantees between March 11 and April 12. For many members, participating in site visits is the most fascinating, fun, and informative portion of the funding cycle.

Member Spotlight: Allison Schapker
Philadelphia is a city for the ages. Although all of us love the iconic nature of our community, we recognize that we need new residents with fresh ideas to create a world class environment to lift the fortunes of the entire region. We were lucky that Allison Schapker chose our town 15 years ago, fresh out of University of Cincinnati, as a place to put down roots. Allison is a seasoned member of Impact100 Philadelphia, and has served as a grant evaluator, Focus Area Chairperson, and member of our Board of Directors. Her ideas, enthusiasm, and talents have made an enormous difference to our organization.
