WHO WE ARE
Impact Jersey Coast is part of a growing international movement that empowers women to fund transformational changes in our local communities. We are local women of different ages and backgrounds who combine our charitable dollars, experience, and energy to make a tangible difference in our area.
To create a forum to raise awareness of our community’s most pressing needs and fund transformational grants for high-impact projects addressing those needs. To strengthen and expand our giving circle to encompass. the richness of ideas, perspectives and the participation of diverse women from a wide range of perspectives.
Impact100 Jersey Coast stands with others for equity and justice and in denouncing racism, intolerance, and exclusion. As with many organizations, we have recognized that it's critical to our health and strength to self‐reflect and acknowledge areas where we can improve and grow. We have created a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee (DE&I) with the ultimate goal to expand involvement & recruitment of a more diverse population of membership, bring more diverse voices and faces to our team and enhance our perspectives and to ultimately help amplify our impact in the community.
Since its inception in 2015, Impact 100 Jersey Coast has awarded more than $1.6 million and this year we are excited to pass the $2 million mark in total grant funds given to Monmouth County nonprofits. In 2020 alone, the organization presented four grants of $114,000 and we look forward to awarding 4 more grants in 2021.
