Our Grantees

Impact100’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, raise the profile of lesser-know nonprofits, and highlight unmet needs in the region.   Through grant-making, we invest in grantees, partner with them, pay attention to their concerns, become familiar with their programs and services, and the communities they serve.  In return, grantees assure us that our process inspires them to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do.

    2017

  • Project Focus:

    Education

  • Grant Award:

    100,000

  • Details:

    Founded in 1971, Interim House empowers women to recover from substance use and co-occurring disorders and enables them to pursue healthy lifestyles and find purpose and meaning in their lives. Interim House achieves these goals by providing comprehensive services to address each woman’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Many of whom have experienced such challenges as domestic abuse, incarceration, untreated psychiatric disorders, and have histories of trauma and abuse as children or as adults, or both. Interim House’s long-term goal is to ensure women in recovery become self-sufficient, productive members of society by acquiring and retaining a living wage job.  Interim House will use the Impact100 grant to address critical gaps in holistic substance abuse recovery by providing a significant number of participants with workforce education and experience in a trauma informed, evidence-based learning environment. The grant will support and expand its Life Skills and Work Readiness Program to increase each participant’s ability to gain employment through four key components: 1. Life and Employment Skills Training; 2. Academic Education and Computer Skills Training; 3. Job Training Programs and Internships; and 4. Employment Placement, Retention, and On-going Support.

    Art-Reach connects underserved audiences, including disabled and low income residents in the Philadelphia region with cultural experiences and the transformative power of the arts.  They provide discounted tickets to cultural events for thousands of disabled individuals who otherwise might not be able to attend. In 2015,  Art-Reach’s  ENCORE Program served 5,300 disabled individuals by pairing many of its 172 human services agency members (including Magee Rehabilitation and Overbrook School for the Blind) with 175 arts partners (including the Penn Museum, Barnes Collection, Philadelphia Orchestra, Walnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia Zoo and Flower Show).  Impact funding allows Art-Reach to expand the ENCORE Program, and to produce a documentary of ENCORE outreach programs to demonstrate “impact” to future funders and program partners.

  • CASA Philadelphia
  • Year of Award:

    2016

  • Project Focus:

    Education

  • Grant Award:

    $106,667

  • Details:

    CASA Philadelphia trains and supports community volunteers to serve as court appointed special advocates for abused and neglected children who have been removed from their homes, placed in the foster care system, and are under the supervision of the Department of Human Services (DHS).   In 2013, CASA Philadelphia launched a pilot Educational Decision-Maker (EDM) Program at the request of the Philadelphia Judiciary. Court appointed EDMs are the law in Pennsylvania but the state does not provide funding.  An EDM is a legal decision-maker for a child’s educational rights, addressing a child’s educational needs rather than his/her general welfare needs. EDMs work primarily with children living in congregate care settings (group homes) without an adult authorized to make educational decisions on the child’s behalf. With Impact100 funding, CASA Philadelphia will expand its EDM program and create a training module to be used across Pennsylvania to train EDMs.
