“I am a member of an amazing group of philanthropic women and I was hoping you would join me!  Let me tell you a little bit about it:

Imagine making a charitable donation that has a transformative impact in your community.  You have that power.   And it’s easy.

Impact 100 Chicago offers a unique model in philanthropic giving, allowing us to fund high-impact grants.  Here is how the model works: 

  • Women become members by making a $1,000 contribution.
  • 100% of membership donations are pooled to create $100,000 grants. The more members, the more grants.
  • Local qualified nonprofits are invited to apply for the grants in one of five categories: Culture, Education, Family, Health and Sustainability.
  • Volunteer member committees conduct an extensive review process and select finalists.
  • All members are invited to hear presentations from the finalists and vote at the annual Grant Award Celebration. The grants are awarded that night. 

It’s that easy.  You invest $1,000 and you make a $100,000 impact.

You control your involvement and time investment. You can simply write a check, knowing that it will have a transformative impact in your community, or you can choose to participate in the grant review process.  Either way, you will meet other women who want to make a difference.  At the conclusion of the review process, every member is invited to attend the Grant Award Ceremony, hear the finalists’ presentations, and cast their vote to select the grant recipients.
