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.

    $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.

  • Philadelphia Young Playwrights
  • Year of Award:

    2017

  • Project Focus:

    Arts & Culture

  • Grant Award:

    $30,000

  • Details:

    Philadelphia Young Playwrights (PYP) began its first full year of operation in 1987 and quickly established a reputation for its innovative classroom practices. PYP focuses on playwrighting as a literacy-learning tool and as an opportunity to engage students in new and creative ways. Their mission focuses on the transformative nature and opportunity that exists in playwrighting, a vehicle for personal introspection, empathetic imagination, and performative storytelling, which has tremendous potential to build community and to cultivate citizen-artists from participants and audiences alike. PYP sees the creative arts as the most hopeful potential for people with chronic trauma.  Impact100’s core mission grant would enable PYP to address a number of needs over a two year funding period by: 1) sustaining their Provision of Core Program residencies in four school classrooms equaling approximately 100 hours of direct instruction; 2) purchasing 30 iPads to support classroom equity; and 3) developing a pilot program in partnership with Healing Hurt People (HHP)- a hospital-based violence intervention program designed to reduce re-injury and retaliation among youths who are victims of intentional violence. PYP will be integrating playwrighting into HHP’s program.

  • The Attic Youth Center
  • Year of Award:

    2017

  • Project Focus:

    Family

  • Grant Award:

    $100,000

  • Details:

    Since 1993, The Attic Youth Center in Philadelphia has provided a safe and supportive community where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth can develop into healthy, independent, civic minded adults.  The Attic is now one of the largest community centers in the US committed exclusively to serving LGBTQ youth and allies. On a daily basis, anywhere from 25 to 70 underprivileged youth (ages 14 -24) attend programs including art, music, radio-podcast, HIV prevention, support and discussion groups. The Attic Youth Center has a kitchen which provides meals and snacks, as well as space for mental health counseling and HIV testing.  LGBTQ youth are high risk for dropping out of high school, landing in jail, or attempting suicide. Many have aged out of foster care and are homeless. They are unsure how to find affordable housing and lack the skills to live independently. A core mission grant from Impact100 would help these homeless youth obtain housing (with Covenant House and other housing partners) along with counseling, job readiness programming, and crisis services.
