About Us

Impact 100 Richmond is a grassroots, grant making philanthropy group that empowers women to make a lasting impact in our community by collectively funding transformational grants. Members make an annual, tax-deductible donation to support at least one $100,000 grant in one of five focus areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Family and Health & Wellness. Since our inception in 2009, we have awarded $1.4 million to 14 local nonprofits by connecting more than 1,000 women all over Metro Richmond, including educators, homemakers, small business owners, business professionals and young women growing in their careers. We are a volunteer-driven organization with more than 300 annual members. 

To create positive change in the greater Richmond region through high impact,
transformational grantmaking.

* NEW FOR 2018-19 *
This year we will have the exciting opportunity to participate in another type of grantmaking. The Neighborhood Catalyst Grant
represents a four-year investment in one Richmond community. Members choose the neighborhood and, for four years, award a $25,000 grant to a different nonprofit or group doing positive work in that community.

Our 2018-19 goal is to raise $225,000 so we can award two $100,000 grants and our first-ever $25,000 Neighborhood Catalyst Grant. We hope you'll join us for this powerful and life changing journey of collective, transformational giving.
