Impact100 SRQ members can volunteer on any one of the five committees. FACs begin to review the grant applications in late May. The FACs have weekly meetings from mid-June to mid-September, not every week, and are led by a Chair. All committee members are expected to read the grant applications that have been submitted to their Focus Area as well as perform independent research on the nonprofit organization. Three to four members from the committee will conduct a site visit to the nonprofit to gather information and report their findings back to the rest of their committee. At the conclusion of this work, the committee will choose the finalist(s) for their Focus Area. The nonprofits that are chosen as finalists will present their proposed initiative to our members at the Annual Celebration. At the Annual Celebration, each member casts one vote.
Conflict of Interest – Impact100 SRQ is committed to acting with integrity in all of our relationships and to selecting grant recipients through an honest and fair process. All committee members are required to agree to our Conflict of Interest Policy and complete a disclosure form. If a member serves on the Board, is an employee, or has a significant relationship with a nonprofit whose grant is being reviewed by one of our focus committees, we will ask the member to serve on a different committee.
