Grants to Kentucky nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for programs that benefit local communities. Funding is intended to support projects and activities within the focus areas of education, culture, family, environment, recreation, and health and wellness. Funds can be used for programming (new or expanded activities), capital expenditures, endowment funding, research and development, and collaborative project and programs. The two types of grants - grants of $100,000 and the Residual grant - allow for significant impact on an agency’s service to the Greater Owensboro area.

Estimated Size of Grant:

A proposal must be for the full $100,000 grant amount. The project’s total budget may exceed $100,000; but if so, the grant application must indicate how the remaining funds will be secured.

As membership grows, more than one $100,000 grant will be awarded. Residual grants from remaining money beyond the $100,000 funds will be divided equally among the remaining finalists.

Term of Contract:

An organization must expend the grant within 24 months of award. Residual funds must be spent within 12 months of the award.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To qualify for an IMPACT 100 Owensboro grant, an organization must be recognized as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and have proof of good standing and current registration with State of Kentucky Secretary of State.
