Nonprofit Workshop

Every April, IMPACT 100 Pensacola hosts a workshop open to all nonprofit organizations in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties as part of our mission “to know and serve the community.” The program includes an inspirational guest speaker, details of the grant cycle, application requirements and instructions, panel of previous grant recipients, and IMPACT 100 board members to answer your questions. 

This year we are delighted to have Emily Ley as our Guest Speaker. Emily graduated from University of West Florida with a Masters Degree in Public Administration with an emphasis in nonprofit management. She worked as the Executive Director of Ballet Pensacola, Community Development Manager for Covenant Hospice and helped run the Women in Leadership & Philanthropy program at the University of South Florida. She then founded Simplified®, a brand of planners and organizational tools for busy women. Emily has been featured in Forbes, Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, Glamour, and Good Housekeeping. She has been recognized with numerous awards, including Best New Product at the National Stationery Show, as well as Small Business of the Year, Female Owned Business of the Year, and Entrepreneur of the Year by Studer Community Institute. Emily and her team collaborated with AT-A-GLANCE® to create gift and planning collections carried in Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, and Target. Emily is also the author of six national bestselling books. Now, as an author, entrepreneur, wife and mother of three, Emily lives in Pensacola, Florida, with her husband, Bryan, and their son Brady and twins, Tyler and Caroline.
