IMPACT 100 of NW Florida Announces Membership and Funding Totals

Published on

IMPACT 100 of Northwest Florida announced recently that their 2018 membership has grown to 514 women, giving back $514,000 of grant award funding for nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Okaloosa and Walton counties.

 

IMPACT 100 NWF will have 10 finalists. Two finalists will be chosen from each of our five focus areas: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Health & Recreation, and Family. In addition to the Finance Committee that thoroughly vets each grant applicant organization, the five grant review committees consist of members responsible for review of grant applications and conduct site visits with applicants.

 

Each committee then provides recommendations of finalists to the Board of Directors who in turn approve the 10 finalists. At the November 2018 annual meeting, IMPACT 100 NWF members will vote to determine one winner from each focus area, totaling five grant winners who will each receive a grant award of $102,800.

 

For additional information about IMPACT 100 NWF or to join the organization, visit IMPACTNWF.org. The website provides two educational videos that include an overview of IMPACT 100 NWF and features grant awardees from 2012 to 2016. The grant award video highlights the successful community outreach and the services provided by the nonprofit grant awardees of Okaloosa and Walton counties.

 

IMPACT 100’s mission is to financially support nonprofit organizations in our area by bringing together women philanthropists as members.  Every membership dollar goes directly towards the grant award fund.  Since 2012, IMPACT 100 NWF has awarded $2.2 million in funding.
