Impact100 Essex Inaugural Grant Review is Underway!

Impact100 Essex is pleased to announce 66 completed applications for our inaugural grant. Non-profits operating throughout Essex County, providing a a broad range of services from the arts to services for families and children, the elderly, environmental projects, job training programs, education and youth empowerment, have submitted proposals for transformative programs to serve their communities. The organizations have been operating from three to over 150 years.

The Impact100 Grants Committee is now beginning its process of evaluating the applications. Members of the committee attended orientation sessions, and four sub-committees will now review and discuss the applications. Each sub-group will recommend two or three organizations to move on to the next phase, which will include a full financial review and site visits. The four finalists will be announced on March 1st with a press event. Finalists will present their projects at the Impact100 Essex annual meeting on March 26, and the full membership will vote to choose the recipient. Inquiries: Grants@Impact100essex.org
