Ways to be Involved
As a member of Impact100 Philadelphia you can be as involved as you like. Committees are formed annually for each of the five Focus Areas and members have the opportunity to fully participate in the grant-making process by reviewing proposals and attending site visits for applicant organizations. Women who do not have the time or interest to participate in the Focus Area Committee process can be involved in other committees or can simply vote at the Annual Meeting where a finalist in each Focus Area will make a presentation to the membership.
Focus Area Committees (FAC)
If you are interested in learning more about philanthropy and the non-profits in our community, you may want to participate on one of the Focus Area Committees. Focus Areas include Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Family, and Health & Wellness. Members will be informed about the sign-up period for FACs, which occurs annually in December and January. FAC members will receive orientation and training about our grant-making process, will have the opportunity to evaluate proposals, make site visits and help determine the finalists for each Focus Area.
2021 FAC Member Meeting Schedule
Members also may volunteer to help plan our events, including educational programs and the Annual Meeting where we vote to select the grantees. You can also volunteer to help promote Impact100 Philadelphia to other women and increase our membership.
In addition, we gather volunteer opportunities from our grantees on an ongoing basis. You can see those “wish lists” here.
If you have questions regarding the FACs or other volunteer opportunities or want to become involved, please contact us.
