2022 Nonprofit info sessions



The Opportunity
March 4th, 2022 – Impact 100 Jersey Coast, a volunteer philanthropic women’s organization, today announced it will be holding two Grant Applicant Information Sessions for nonprofits in Monmouth County, NJ that are interested in applying for funding in 2022. These annual grants offer an opportunity for local nonprofits of all sizes, representing a range of needs in the community, to launch new initiatives and sustain their services. The information sessions will be held virtually via Zoom at 12 pm on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, and 12 pm on Thursday, April 7, 2022. Please register here.

After an impactful six years, during which it awarded over $2 million in transformational grants, Impact 100 Jersey Coast is excited to share the following developments in its 2022 grantmaking approach:

The Addition of Mission Awards – Grants will continue to be awarded in increments of $100,000. To maximize the reach and impact of its giving, excess funds will be divided among the remaining finalists in the form of Mission Awards.

Increased Opportunity to be a Finalist – The five grant review committees will put forward up to two finalists in each focus area for consideration/vote by the wider membership.
