A Letter To Our Members

Dear Impact 100 Martin member,

Thank you for being a member of Impact 100 Martin this past year.  We hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.

If life this year was “normal,” you would have been asked to recommit your membership to Impact 100 Martin at our annual Grant Awards Celebration in April.  At that time, we would have chosen our 2020 Impact Grant recipients, heard words of inspiration, and collectively experienced the impact that we are making – together – in our community.

Alas, these are not normal times.  But thanks to you and your sister members, our response to this pandemic has been nothing short of extraordinary.  Our impact is truly being felt throughout Martin County – just in a different way than we’d planned.

By quickly regrouping in light of the developing pandemic and making a resounding decision to dedicate this year’s grant funding to COVID-19 relief, our membership has demonstrated flexibility, resilience and an unwavering commitment to create positive, lasting change through collective giving.  To date, 13 of our area’s nonprofit organizations serving those hardest hit by the pandemic have received grant funding through Impact 100 Martin.

As we look forward to our fourth year, the philanthropic landscape in Martin County has transformed dramatically.  Our community needs us now more than ever.  During these unprecedented times, you can help us make an even bigger impact by renewing your membership for the coming year.  Can we count on you?

Enclosed is a membership commitment card and return envelope for your convenience.  We encourage you to reach out to either of us with any questions or input you may have.

Thank you for making an impact in our community through collective giving.  Together, we have accomplished much . . . yet in these challenging times, there is much more to be done.  We hope you will join us.
