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 Dr. Irvin Williams and Ms. Emily Lalas as our Guest Speakers.

Community development activities ranging from economic development to social and health promotion include: the development and implementation of a Community Development Corporation, development and facilitation of anti- racism community groups, development of community coalitions to prevent violence, substance abuse and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
