Impact 100 TC Launch Raises $255K For Local Grants

Impact 100 Traverse City - a local all-women philanthropy group - announced Thursday that 255 members will participate in its inaugural launch this year, with each member donating $1,000 toward two transformative project grants to be awarded to area nonprofits.

The Traverse City launch is the largest ever for an Impact 100 group. The program has membership groups across the country, with Traverse City becoming the 44th active group. Impact 100 Traverse City will give away two $127,500 grants to two nonprofits in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, or Leelanau counties on November 8, 2017, with members determining the grant recipients. Grants will be awarded in one or more of the following five focus areas: Arts & Culture; Education; Environment, Recreation & Preservation; Family; and Health & Wellness.

Nonprofit organizations interested in applying for a grant are invited to attend the Nonprofit Education Workshop at the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce Building on Friday, April 28th from 10am to 1pm. All nonprofits in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau Counties are "invited to learn about the grant process, get tips to writing a more successful grant, and be inspired to dream big for their grant project," according to Impact 100. Reservations for the workshop can be made by email. Grant applications must be submitted by May 31, 2017.
