OUR PROCESS

We are committed to continuing our grantmaking in whatever ways we can, be it virtually or otherwise, and we are also busy exploring ways we can most effectively respond to the needs of our communities most vulnerable populations and be as supportive as possible to our nonprofits serving them.

We are coordinating with other Impact groups, local grantmakers and nonprofits to ensure we remain connected, nimble and responsive in the face of this crisis. We will be updating you all with latest Impact news and developments as we move forward into the 2022 Grant Cycle.

Total funding is determined by the number of members who join our giving circle by the close of our Membership Drive in March of each year.
