Welcome to Impact 100 Chicago

Impact 100 Chicago’s mission is to award membership funded transformational grants to local non-profit organizations while empowering women to improve lives through philanthropy.

We invite you to join us on an inspiring and philanthropic journey. Whether you are a member or potential member, a grant recipient or in search of a grant, we hope you will find the information you need here.

COVID-19 Impact Update

Impact 100 Chicago’s highest priority is to safeguard the well being of our members and the community we serve to minimize the impact of the Covid-19 virus. It is difficult, but necessary, for us to put space between all of our stakeholders, including our members, nonprofit partners, and prospective members in the best interest of our community.  The Board of Directors of Impact 100 Chicago has been working together virtually to keep our process moving forward.

Let the Virtual Site Visits Begin!

Thanks to the hard work of the Grant Review and Financial Review committees, 11 non-profits are moving forward to a virtual site visit. All non-profits have been contacted and are determining the best way to present their organizations virtually.

Save the Date! 

Our 10th Grant Awards Celebration is June 9, 2020 at Arlington Park Race Track.  At this time, we do expect to have the awards celebration as normal, but if a virtual celebration is needed, we will provide information for virtual attendance.  Please mark the date on your calendars now!
