Impact100 Announces Three Grant Winners

Sept. 24, 2020

Impact100 Traverse City announced the three 2020 nonprofit recipients of $316,000 in grants at its first ‘virtual’ Annual Meeting Tuesday night. Newton’s Road Northwest, Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region, and Michael’s Place -- were each awarded $105,333.34.

The three recipients, chosen from five finalists that also included Old Town Playhouse and Preserve Hickory, were selected by membership majority vote. The nonprofits will use their respective grants to fund transformative projects thanks to the 316 women who each donated at least $1,000 to the organization this year.

Newton’s Road Northwest will use its grant to recruit and train a community liaison in each of the 20 library districts in the five county region to connect communities and K-12 students to high-quality STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics) related experiences.

The grant to Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region will provide them revolving capital to accelerate the building process and increase the capacity of new home builds.

Michael’s Place will use its grant to meet the rising needs for grief support services through the Tending the Wounds program, which is designed to help children and adults traumatized by the suicide or overdose death of a loved one.

The all-volunteer women’s organization grants 100 percent of membership money raised and its goal is to grow membership to at least 500, so that annually a $100,000 grant can be given in each of the five focus areas. Impact100 Traverse City has granted $1,122,000 since its inception four years ago.
