This money is raised with the intent of serving the community in a variety of ways, such as education, healthcare, and many other social services. Nonetheless, many nonprofits around the world do not receive proper funding.

What is Impact 100?
Impact 100 Jersey Coast was founded by Deirdre Spiropoulos of Fair Haven and Heather Burke of Middletown. Rowena Crawford-Phillips introduces her coalition:
“Impact 100 offers its members a unique opportunity to learn more about the unmet needs in their community, and support, in a truly tangible, hands-on way, some of the many fantastic programs and projects helping to address those needs.”
This philanthropic, predominantly female, group has made a lot of traction, having spread to communities throughout the globe, with millions of dollars raised in grants to local, nonprofit organizations each year. Impact 100 is a dynamic coalition that aims to provide a forum to raise awareness toward our community’s most pressing needs. Specifically, in order to fund transformational grants for high-impact, innovative projects addressing those needs. As Rowena Crawford-Phillips, grants committee co-chair, explains,
“It is extremely inspiring on so many levels to be part of this women's giving circle. By bringing together so many philanthropically-minded women and pooling our resources to provide much needed, transformative funding to nonprofits, we believe we can make a meaningful difference and positive impact in our local community,”
