Impact100 Greater Milwaukee is an organization of women who are leveraging our collective philanthropy, making informed decisions and directing our giving. In other words, we’re making an IMPACT! Founded in 2015, we are a dedicated and collaborative group of women who offer a new source of funding for local nonprofit organizations.
It is a simple idea: one woman, one vote. Women make a fully deductible donation of $1,100 annually, $1,000 of which goes directly to our grants, and the remaining $100 supports Impact100 Greater Milwaukee’s operational expenses.
Grant applications are accepted in December in each of our five focus areas:
◊ Arts & Culture ◊ Education ◊ Environment ◊ Family ◊ Health & Wellness ◊
Following a rigorous evaluation process by our members, focus area finalists are invited to present to the full membership at the Annual Awards Celebration. Following the presentations that night, members vote and the grant recipients are announced. For every 100 members, Impact100 Greater Milwaukee will award one $100,000 grant. The balance of funds is divided among the remaining finalists. The more members we have, the more we can award!
Impact100 Greater Milwaukee is an all-volunteer organization which relies on the skills and talents of its members. We strive to be an inclusive, diverse organization of women who will grow as knowledgeable philanthropists in supporting our local nonprofits.
