IMPACT 100 Northwest Florida is a group of women that seeks to transform the lives of people in Okaloosa and Walton Counties by funding transformational, high-impact projects through grants to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in those counties. The exact amount of funds available for award in any given year depends upon the number of women who join the organization.
Annual membership in IMPACT 100 of Northwest Florida is $1000—one woman + $1000 = one vote. 100 women donating $1000 each make it possible to award $100,000 to a worthy project of a local nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Thus the name IMPACT 100. Members may be as active as they choose: serving on a grant review committee or one of our standing committees, helping to promote the organization or just coming to vote at the annual meeting. The membership deadline for each year is May 1.
EACH ONE ASK ONE 2017
We want all women in Okaloosa and Walton Counties to know all about IMPACT 100. To introduce the organization to those who are not yet members and to provide an opportunity for existing members to renew their memberships, we host a series of events beginning in January and running through April.
In 2016 we had 369 members. Join with us to increase that number in 2017. Come to a membership event and learn how you can become an integral part of your community, network with an amazing group of woman, and make an impact in the lives of many. By pooling resources together we can create high IMPACT grants that change the lives of many in your community.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT – COMPANY MATCH PROGRAM
Did you know that many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees? Some even match gifts by spouses. These programs are a great way for companies to give back to the community. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company has a matching gift program.
