“It’s not too early to start thinking of a project that your organization would like to have funded that will create significant, positive change in our community,” says Nancy Wong, Impact 100 Martin Executive Committee chair.

Impact 100 Martin is continuing to add new members throughout the remainder of 2018, with the goal of reaching 200 members by year’s end.

“Reaching 200 members would allow us to award two $100,000 game-changing grants this year,” said Linda Weiksnar, membership co-chair.
