Impact 100 of Northwest Florida (Impact 100 NWF) is currently recruiting women interested in making a positive impact on the nonprofits in our community during their 2023 Membership Year.
The concept behind Impact100 is simple: 100 women donate $1,000 each to form a $100,000 grant that will be awarded to a local nonprofit that has put together a transformational project intended to take the organization to a new level. Grants are awarded to nonprofits in the following five focus areas:
● Arts and Culture
● Environment, Recreation & Preservation
● Health and Wellness
In 2022, the organization had 532 members and awarded five $100,000 grants. Since the creation of Impact100 Northwest Florida in 2012, over $4.1 million has been granted to 38 local nonprofit groups in our area.
One hundred percent of each member contribution is awarded to nonprofit organizations, with none of that contribution going to administrative costs.
“We are looking forward to providing at least five nonprofits with transformational funding in 2023. The needs of our community continue to increase and the more members that join each year, the more we can support the nonprofits who are doing so much to care for our neighbors in Walton and Okaloosa Counties,” said Carly Barnes, President of Impact 100 of Northwest Florida.
There are several upcoming membership recruitment events that will include presentations by Impact 100 NWF leadership as well as previous grant recipients.
