Thank you for your interest in our group of philanthropic and engaging women.
Our purpose is to fuel transformation in our local community by uniting women in collective giving. How do we do that? We provide an environment that is inviting and rewarding, while giving women the ability to combine their money in order to make big contributions to local nonprofit organizations. We offer opportunities for women to harness and grow their talents through direct participation in the philanthropic process. And we provide awareness of and exposure to an expanded universe of local nonprofits.
Come join us. We promise you will experience the euphoria of united giving making a significant impact in our community.
What does that mean for you? Your financial donation to our 2016/2017 grant(s) will help us award $100,000 or more to nonprofits this coming year. We also offer you a personal experience by inviting you to become more directly involved in the Impact100 Metro Detroit philanthropic process. We have several committees you may consider joining. The time commitment is not huge, but your insights and contributions are.
So where does the euphoria come in? Our 2017 Annual Awards Event on will be held on May 11, 2017. Nonprofit finalists will make presentations, after which members will cast their votes for the organization(s) they would like to receive our high-impact grant(s). It is an amazing and heart-warming event where you will learn about so many deserving agencies, and share the joy of giving with your fellow members and guests.
We operate on a simple and proven strategy: 100 or more women agree to contribute $1,000 each to a $100,000 grant. We then participate in the grant selection process, developing our knowledge and leadership, and investing in nonprofits in the local community.
Join us in this exciting philanthropic opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you!
