grants committee.

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 either paid in full for the year or current with their installment plan and available to score applications and attend most meetings. 

Jacquie Stephens and Lisa LaFrance, are Chairs for the Grants Committee for 2021/22.  Contact Jacquie at jstephens@eddiestephens.com with any questions or if you are interested in joining!
