Each year, IMPACT100 SRQ funds projects with high potential for community impact. Grant funding comes from member contributions and each IMPACT100 member will vote to select the funded projects.

We pool the $1,000 required membership donation from each of our members to award grants with a minimum amount of $100,000.

Membership donations are collected through the end of February. The exact amount of money available for grants is announced at our BIG REVEAL event in March. The number of grants available is determined by the number of members we have as of March 1st each year.

Nonprofit organizations begin the grant application process by submitting an Eligibility Form. Eligibility Forms are reviewed to verify that each organization is eligible to apply for an Impact100 SRQ grant. Grant applications are due at the end of April. Organizations apply in one of the five focus areas: Arts & Culture; Education; Environment & Recreation; Family; or Health & Wellness.

During July and August, IMPACT 100 members serve on committees that evaluate the grant proposals. The committees select finalists in each of the five focus areas.

Finalists are announced at our Meet the Finalists Event in late September.

All of our members are invited to cast a vote to determine the years’ grant recipients. We announce who has been selected at our Annual Celebration in November.

Grant recipients are invited to partner with Impact100 SRQ for one initiative showcase event and one member event.
