IMPACT 100 of Northwest Florida, Inc. recently announced the dates for their upcoming membership and informational meetings.
The group began in 2012 with a simple idea: 100 women give $1,000 each to create a $100,000 grant to meet a community need.
In just four years, the organization has already given $921,000 directly to local non-profits with not one penny of member donations spent on salaries, mailings or overhead of any kind.
All member donations are tax deductible and go directly to non-profits. In addition, all donations stay in Okaloosa and Walton counties.
Since its inception, Impact 100 of Northwest Florida has funded a new building for family visitation in Crestview, new trucks and freezers for Destin Harvest, a veterinary facility for Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge, a pool for the ARC of the Emerald Coast, a new building for Shelter House, purchase of a facility for the Matrix Community Outreach Center in DeFuniak Springs, a new and easily accessible therapy barn for Grace Rides, and a vocational training project for AMIKids.
