VERO BEACH — Impact 100 has extended an invitation to all Indian River County 501(c) 3 agencies to attend the 2012 Application Workshop to be held at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15 at the IRSC Richardson Center.
Any agency wishing to submit an application for one of the much sought after $100,000 grants is urged to attend. Space is limited. Please limit representatives to two individuals.
To register for attendance contact Barbara Lowry, Grants VP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Barbara Lowry will answer questions, such as: Does Impact 100 fund building projects? Do religion based organizations qualify for an Impact 100 grant? Does Impact 100 fund capital campaigns? These questions and more will be addressed at the workshop.
“We will break up into small groups to answer specific questions. Questions can even be submitted prior to the meeting,” says Lowry.
“Impact 100 is looking for grants that can transform an organization, a group of individuals, or the community,” explains President Sue Tompkins. “The grants must be sustainable. The grant writers must show that their programs can be sustained after the Impact 100 money has been spent; in other words they must continue beyond Impact’s funding.”
Descriptions of the finalists’ requests will be sent to every Impact 100 member. Winners will be chosen by a majority vote of the membership and announced at the annual April meeting.
