The goal of Impact100 Philadelphia is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, raise the profile of deserving but lesser known organizations, and highlight unmet needs in the region. Each year, total funding is determined by the number of women who join as members and donate $1,150. $1000 from each member is completely dedicated towards grants, and $150 helps Impact100 Philadelphia cover the operating expense for the organization. Grant finalists are determined through a detailed process of proposal review and evaluation by members, and the grant recipients are chosen by a vote of the membership at the Impact100 Philadelphia Annual Meeting in June.
On June 6th 2016, Impact100 awarded a total of $380,000 in five grants: three of the finalists received project grants of $100,000 each, plus an operating grant of $6,667, and two finalists received operating grants of $30,000.
Please note that organizations apply only for the $100,000 project grant, not for operating funds.
Applying for a grant starts with a Letter of Inquiry. We recommend that you read through each section of the Grant Applicants menu before proceeding.
