Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis strives to award high impact grants of $100,000 or more to at least one nonprofit in our community in one or more of the five focus areas. The amount of funds we have to award will be determined in January of each year and is based on the amount of money donated through memberships, Scholarship and other donations to that year’s grant pool. We use a four-step grant application process (Letter of Intent, Full Application, Site Visit and Finalist Presentation to Members) led by volunteer Impact members who winnow down the applicant pool in each of our focus areas. The recipient(s) will be announced at the Impact 100 Annual Celebration in June.
We do not accept grant requests outside of our annual review process. Links to online forms will be posted as they are finalized. Be certain to carefully review the four-step grant application process to fully understand how our grant process works and which forms nonprofits must complete by the deadlines indicated. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis welcomes proposals from an organization classified as a public charity with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code for supporting organizations.
