Think Big

Impact100 Martin recognizes the important work being done by nonprofit organizations in improving the lives of people in our community. To support this work and encourage organizations to “THINK BIG”, Impact100 Martin annually awards at least one grant of $100,000 to a nonprofit that provides services for Martin County. Consistent with our mission, Impact100 Martin funds grants that have a positive, lasting change on the receiving organizations and the populations they serve.

Grant Cycle is Open!


Our 2021 grant process has officially kicked off!

Grants Process

The grants cycle begins in the fall, and ends the following April with the Grant Awards Celebration.

The Grants Committee, on behalf of the entire membership, accepts grant applications for all fields of interest with no restrictions on focus areas. The Grants Committee uses a grant application process with three phases:

  • Phase 1 – All nonprofit organizations serving Martin County are invited to submit a letter of intent (LOI) clearly articulating a compelling program or project that addresses a critical problem or need in Martin County and the intended impact.
  • Phase 2 – Organizations are selected to submit full grant applications and site visit presentation videos.
  • Phase 3 – Finalists are selected to present their proposals to the entire membership-at-large to vote on at the April Grant Awards Celebration. The organization(s) with the most votes receives the Impact Grant(s).
