Impact 100 Garden State is a women-led, all volunteer, philanthropic organization that empowers women to provide high impact, transformational grants to local nonprofits that reach under-served populations in Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Union counties. Each member contributes $1000 a year and that donation is pooled for collective giving. Since 2013, Impact 100 Garden State has donated over $2 million to vetted nonprofits and each member has a vote in deciding which nonprofits become grant recipients.
The Community Foundation of New Jersey is pleased to host four Impact 100 groups – Impact 100 Garden State, Impact100 Essex, Impact 100 Jersey Coast, and Impact 100 South Jersey – which have brought together a combined 1,100 New Jersey women to make more than $3.5 million in grants to nonprofit organizations to date. These Impact 100 groups share our “multiplier effect” philosophy as evidenced by the volume and, indeed, impact of their giving. To discuss the ways in which the Community Foundation of New Jersey can host these types of philanthropic initiatives, contact us at 973-267-5533.
