Welcome to Impact 100 Richmond

Impact 100 Richmond, a grassroots donor education and grant-making initiative, unites women’s ideas and actions through philanthropy. We are women giving together to create lasting and positive change. We seek to improve the lives of women and their families by transforming a local nonprofit through a significant, collective financial investment. Our strategy is well-researched, yet simple: at least 100 women give $1,100 each to create one or more $100,000 grants – with $1,000 of their gift funding the grants that support the important work of our grant recipients and $100 going to Impact 100’s sustainability fund to support our ongoing operations.

The Big Give 2016 was an amazing night filled with learning, laughter, and celebration! All of our finalists gave amazing and thoughtful presentations.

We are thrilled to announce our grantees for 2016. Each of these deserving finalists received a check for $100,000 for their transformational projects. We can’t wait to hear about their successes in the coming months and years.

Education: Peter Paul Development Center

Peter Paul Development Center supports residents in the east end of Richmond and educates its students by equipping them to serve as positive contributors to their family, community and society. Funding would help complete the Center’s 5,000 square foot capital expansion campaign, nearly doubling the number of children served through the onsite academic program.

Health & WellnessShalom Farms

Shalom Farms grows and distributes fresh produce to the underserved areas of metro Richmond. Funding will help Shalom Farms relocate to a larger, more accessible farm that would triple production, distribution and educational opportunities to those with limited or no access to fresh foods.
