Estimated Size of Grant:

The grant amount fluctuates every year based on the number of members that have joined for that year, yet each recipient in that year would receive the same amount. Each time 100 donations of $1,000 are accumulated, a $100,000 award will be granted.

Term of Contract:

Winners must plan to expend the grant funds within 36 months.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The applicant agency must be a 501(c)(3) or 509(a) public charity.

Applicants must wait three years to reapply if have been an Impact 100 Grant Recipient. For example, 2015 recipients may not reapply until the 2019 grant cycle.

The organization’s grant proposal cannot be accepted for endowments, existing operating costs, partisan activities, completed projects, individual churches, indigent care subsidy, travel, loans, pass-through funds, or for individuals.

Pre-proposal Conference:

The Letter of Intent (LOI) Application workshop is an opportunity for Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky nonprofits to be introduced to Impact 100, the board and the application process. You will learn about the requirements for application, what is and is not funded, and explain the timeline. Additionally, there is a Nonprofit Panel where previous grant recipients and finalists talk about the process and can answer your questions based on their experiences.
