Help us double our impact in 2021!
The need in our community is greater than ever. In the wake of the pandemic, nonprofit funding is down making collective giving models like ours even more critical than before. In 2020, Impact100 Oakland County members were able to award three nonprofits grants of $85,000 each. Doubling our impact in 2021 will allow us to give away 5 grants of $100,000 each. Here are a few ways you can helps us achieve that goal!
- RENEW YOUR OWN MEMBERSHIP TODAY!
Remember, our membership cycle renews every year and closes at the end of March. RE-JOINING IS SIMPLE AND EASY! Simply fill out our online member application here & select pay by check or credit card.
- JOIN OUR 110% CLUB!
Donate an extra $100 towards our administrative costs. As an all-volunteer organization, our administrative costs cover database software, tax & accounting fees, and legal support.
- RECRUIT YOUR “JUST ONE!”
If each 2020 member recruited “just one” new member, we would double our impact!
Personal referrals and word of mouth are our most proven recruitment strategy. Help us reach your network with our stories of transformation!
- UTILIZE THE RACHAEL E. HUBERS MEMORIAL MEMBERSHIP MATCH!
We have recently received a very generous donation from one of our members in memory of her daughter, Rachael Elizabeth Hubers. Our Board of Directors, in consultation with the Hubers family, has decided the best way to honor Rachael is to ensure we continue to grow our membership to maximize our community giving. We are now able to provide $500 matches to 21 applicants in 2021! This is the first time we’ve had the resources to share this type of opportunity with our membership.
If you or someone you know is interested in receiving one of the matches, please complete this form by February 28th. A subcommittee of the Board of Directors will review the applications and inform applicants of the recipients of the 21 matches by mid-March.
