Our Model

The Impact100 model brings women together to award grants to the communities it serves across five broad focus areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Family and Health & Wellness. Founded by Wendy Steele, the model has been replicated in communities across the U.S. & Australia with more than 70 organizations. To date, Impact chapters have given away more than $45 million.
