Impact100 provides high-impact grants for primary programs, services, necessary infrastructure and other initiatives that support a nonprofit organization’s core mission (consult the Core Mission FAQs). Our goal is to reach underserved populations, raise the profile of lesser known organizations, and highlight unmet needs in the Philadelphia region.
Applicants apply for grant funding of at least $100,000 in a Focus Area that supports their mission, programs or services. Our Focus Areas include: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Family, and Health & Wellness.
Each year, total funding available for grants is determined by the number of women who join Impact100 by December 1. Grant finalists are determined through a detailed process of proposal review and site visit evaluation by members. Impact100 grant recipients are chosen by a vote of the membership at the Annual Meeting in June.
Applying for a grant starts with a Letter of Inquiry. We recommend that you read our eligibility criteria before proceeding.
