Welcome to Impact100 Oakland County, a community of women seeking to transform lives in Oakland County by awarding high-impact grants to nonprofits in the areas of Arts & Culture, Education, Environment & Recreation, Family, and Health & Wellness.
Mission Statement: Impact100 Oakland County is an organization of women committed to improving their community by providing substantial grants to nonprofit organizations in Oakland County.
We are about the power of collective decision-making and collective philanthropy.
The idea is simple: 100 women, each giving $1,000 and each having one vote resulting in a gift of $100,000 to an organization that has a big idea and great potential but may have little access to large-scale funds.
The first chapter of Impact100 started in 2001 in Cincinnati, Ohio. There are now over 25 chapters of Impact100 in the U.S. serving their local areas. Impact100 Oakland County is a nonproﬁt organization comprised of women with a desire to make a difference in the lives of people living in Oakland County. Membership is open to all women who embrace the same goals regardless of where they live. The organization is inclusive and strives for diversity of all types.
Impact100’s objective is to have a minimum of 100 members who each donate $1,000 annually. One hundred percent of the funds donated is returned to the community in the form of grants. For example, if there are 100 members by the end of the year, all $100,000 is given to a worthy nonproﬁt organization in the Oakland County area. By pooling our resources to create one large gift, we can make an impact!
