To award high-impact, grants to nonprofits serving Westchester. To reach under-resourced populations and highlight unmet needs.
HOW WE MAKE AN IMPACT
Impact100 Westchester is a women’s collective giving organization celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. By pooling our members’ funds, we dramatically increase each individual’s power to make a difference. Impact100 awards grants exclusively to Westchester nonprofits.
Since our first grant cycle in 2014, Impact100 Westchester has awarded almost $2.5 million to local nonprofits. Each year, our members contribute funds via membership dues and evaluate proposals for transformational projects from Westchester nonprofits. At our Annual Meeting, the membership votes to determine which nonprofits are awarded a Transformational Project Grant. Past grants have funded projects such as the construction of a Teen Center at Gilda’s Club and the expansion of a program at Yonkers Partners in Education.
Annual membership dues for 2023 are $1,150. Additional donations are welcome. Coporate Sponsorships are available at various levels. Please visit our website: www.impact100westchester.org for details.
Impact100 Westchester is a 100% volunteer led and run organization; there are many opportunities for members to be involved. Members have the option (but no obligation) to join one of our committees (Grant Review, Finance, Membership), participate in education events, be part of a hands-on project or just attend the Annual Meeting.
