community. The collaborative structure of this efficient model empowers women to create waves of

positive change by participating in the following:

Once a year we gather for our annual giving event. With each member contributing $1,000 to the Impact grant, together we are able to collectively give at least one $100,000 grant to a local nonprofit.

Our members drive the momentum of the organization through member relations, the grant review process, all forms of media communication, and ongoing educational and social events. 


Impact fosters a spirit of networking and friendship through ongoing learning opportunities, social gatherings, committee participation, and volunteer days 



grants committee.

The Grants Committee VIRTUAL Kick-Off is scheduled for Wednesday, September 30, 2020, at 4PM.   

The Grants Committee is charged with reviewing and scoring all of the grant applications received by Impact.  Once we score and review all of the proposals, we meet to narrow them down until we come up with the finalists that the entire Impact membership will then vote on to decide which proposals will receive our annual grants.   

Serving on the Grants Committee requires a time commitment, but it is incredibly informative and rewarding.  Members must be paid in full for the year and available to score applications and attend most meetings. 

Lauren Sterlacci, Jacquie Stephens, Lisa LaFrance, are Chairs for the Grants Committee for 2020/21.  Contact Lauren Sterlacci (sterlacilm@gmail.com) with any questions or if you are interested in joining!
