VERO BEACH — After a rigorous grant review process, Impact 100 is happy to announce that the following non profit organizations have been selected as finalists for this year’s Indian River Impact 100 grants:

1.  Childcare Resources – Childcare Resource Education Center Infant Suite (Education)

3.  The Harvest Food And Outreach Center (HFOC) – The Hunger Relief Program (Health and Wellness)

4.  The Junior League Of Indian River County (JLIR) – Whole Child Connection of Indian River


These organizations will present their proposals before the entire Impact 100 membership at its annual meeting on Monday, April 19 at the Mueller Campus Richardson Center of Indian River State College in Vero Beach.  Check in begins at 2:30 p.m. with the program beginning promptly at 3:00 p.m.  Presentations will begin at 3:15 with voting to follow.

The two organizations with the highest number of votes will be awarded $116,000 each at the close of the meeting.  This year, Impact 100 has 232 members and has once again surpassed its goal.

Impact 100 is 100% volunteer driven and many members played a vital role reviewing proposals including site visits, financial review as well as overseeing each application with great dedication and enthusiasm.  Each proposal was an exciting example of the important work being done by the non profit sector and a testimony to the future potential of Impact 100 in our community.

We are grateful to all those who volunteered for this important endeavor as well as to the 232 women in Vero Beach from all walks of life and backgrounds who so believe in and generously support this organization.
