The Impact Movement
Started in Cincinnati in 2001 by Wendy Steele, Impact 100 empowers women to dramatically improve lives by collectively funding significant grants that make a lasting impact in their local communities.
There are currently over 50 chapters of Impact 100 across the country that have awarded more than $65 million in grants since the movement’s inception. All chapters are independently run but adhere to the same collective giving principle. Members can be as active as they wish by participating on committees, or simply by educating themselves about the grant finalists and participating in the grant award voting.
