grant committee.

The Grant Committee is charged with reviewing and scoring all of the grant applications received by Impact. Once members have individually reviewed and scored the proposals, the committee meets to narrow them down and vote on a list of finalists that will present to the entire Impact membership for the opportunity to receive an Impact grant.  

Serving on the Grant Committee requires a time commitment, but is incredibly informative and rewarding. Members must be either paid in full for the year or current with their installment plan and available to score applications and attend most meetings. Click the calendar link above to review the timeline.

Aleese Kopf is the chair of the 2022-2023 Grant Committee with Kristen Perrone and Erin Standish serving as co-chairs. If you would like to join the Grant Committee or have any questions about being a member, please contact Aleese at 561-655-1919 or aleesekopf@palmbeachunitedway.org.
