Each year, IMPACT 100 Pensacola Bay Area funds projects with high potential for community impact.
IMPACT 100 has no paid employees or staff, so one hundred percent of each member’s annual contribution of $1,000 is pooled and awarded to nonprofit organizations in increments of at least $100,000 grants. Grant funding comes from member contributions and each IMPACT 100 member will vote to select the funded projects.
We pool the $1,000 required membership donation from each of our members to award grants with a minimum amount of $100,000.
Membership donations are collected through March 1st. The exact amount of money available for grants is revealed at our membership announcement event in March. The number of grants available each year is determined by the number of members we have as of March 1st each year.
Nonprofit organizations begin the grant application process by submitting a Letter of Intent to Apply (LOI) prior to noon on April 30th. LOIs are reviewed to verify each organization’s eligibility to apply for a grant. Grant applications are accepted until noon on June 15th. Organizations apply in one of the five focus areas – Arts, Culture & History; Education; Environment & Recreation; Family; or Health & Wellness.
During July and August, IMPACT 100 members serve on committees that evaluate the grant proposals. The committees select finalists in each of the five focus areas.
At our annual meeting in October, we invite all members to cast a vote to determine the grant recipients. The grant recipients are announced at the end of this meeting.
