About Our Grants

At Impact100 Metro Detroit we provide high-impact grants that support local nonprofits in reaching underserved populations, and meeting unmet needs in our community.

Through our grant-making process we familiarize ourselves with the programs, services, and communities that our nonprofits serve; we invest not only financially, but also by becoming a partner to them. In return our partners are able to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do and the impact they have.
