Join me in making an IMPACT! I am part of an energetic group of philanthropic women called Impact100 Greater Milwaukee, which is committed to making a difference in our community.
Imagine being part of a group of women that directs a charitable donation of $100,000. The Impact100 model is simple and works like this:
•Women join by making an $1,100 contribution to Impact100 Greater Milwaukee.
•$1,000 of each contribution is pooled with other members’ contributions in order to create $100,000 grants. ($100 is used to cover Impact100 Greater Milwaukee operational expenses).
•Impact100 Greater Milwaukee invites eligible nonprofit organizations in the four-county Greater Milwaukee Area to apply for a grant in one of five Focus Areas: Arts & Culture* Education* Environment & Revitalization*Family* Health & Wellness.
•Impact100 Greater Milwaukee member volunteers participate in grant review training, then conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the grant proposals, and ultimately select finalists in each Focus Area.
•The Impact100 Greater Milwaukee membership meets in June at The Annual Awards Celebration and listens to presentations from the five finalists. Following the presentations, each member casts her vote for the winner of a $100,000 Impact Grant, which is awarded that evening.
It’s easy, it’s efficient, and it’s effective! Members choose the degree to which they’d like to be involved in Impact100 Greater Milwaukee. The only requirement is an $1,100 annual contribution. However, we encourage member participation in any area from member development to the grant review process. Regardless of your level of involvement, you will be a part of a group of women who are making an IMPACT on the Greater Milwaukee community.
