July 23, 2020

Impact100 Traverse City, the nonprofit group of women who have each donated $1,000, has selected its five finalist nonprofits for this round of grants. The five are: Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region, Michael’s Place, Newton’s Road Northwest, Old Town Playhouse, and Preserve Hickory. The three nonprofits receiving the most member votes at the Impact100 TC annual meeting on September 22 will receive grants of $105,333 each. 

The ultimate goal of the all-volunteer women’s organization is to provide a $100,000 grant within all of their focus areas by encouraging at least 500 women to engage together in philanthropy by each contributing $1,000 annually to fund local transformational grants. The organization has granted $1,122,000 since its inception four years ago.

Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region's project is "Building Homes And Hope Initiative." Michael’s Place's project is "Trauma, Suicide And Childhood Bereavement." Newton’s Road Northwest's project is "Newton's Road Career Investigation Platform." Old Town Playhouse's project is "Enhancing The Patrons' Sensory Experience At OTP." Preserve Hickory's project is "Energy Efficient Lighthing For Hickory Hills."
