Save the date for our in-person Annual Awards Celebration, when the 2022 Members will vote for our 2022 Change Maker, the recipient of our $100,000 high impact grant.
Invite your friends, colleagues, and family to join us as five change maker finalists present their inspiring, impactful, and innovative program proposals. All attendees will then share in the excitement as the 2022 Change Maker is announced at the end of the evening!
This year, our Impact 100 grant pool has grown to $167,000. This means that, in addition to the $100,000 Change Maker Grant, Impact 100 will grant four Community Support Grants of $16,750, one to each of the remaining four finalists.
Please add the 17th Annual Awards Celebration on June 14, 2022, 5:30pm on your calendar. Our elegant and rustic event venue, Heirloom Event Space, boasts warm ambiance, fantastic air circulation, and free parking. We look forward to seeing you there!
We’ll have a Wine Pull and Dash to Dine to add to the excitement and are accepting donations to both. Proceeds from these events go to support Impact 100’s “Friend” fund, which helps us keep the ticket cost to the event down and supports operating costs and overhead expenses. These funds ensure that 100% of each membership donation goes directly to the annual Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis grant pool.
More information will be announced here as it becomes available.
