Important Reminders for Grant Review Committee Sign-Up

Mark your calendars! GRC signup will take place online only.  The online event will go live at 9:30am on Monday, February 5th and run through Thursday, February 15th, 2018!  Below is a handy list of reminders for all members who are interested in volunteering on a grant review committee (GRC):

  • Before making your committee selection, be sure to review the GRC meeting dates to determine the committees that best accommodate your availability and Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy to understand the requirements for serving on a committee.

  • Members can access online committee sign-up “sheets” via our Impact 100 events page.  Please note: registration will take place online only this year and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • All five GRC committees (representing the five focus areas: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Family and Health & Wellness) will have a maximum capacity of 22 volunteers and registration will close Friday, February 15th or when the volunteer capacity has been reached. 
  • We strongly encourage our renewing members who served on a committee in the past to please consider bringing your experience and expertise to a different committee. By doing so, our newest members will be given an opportunity to participate, while renewing members can gain new perspectives and diversified learning experiences from a new focus area. 
  • New members, don’t forget to RSVP for one of our 60-minute grants training sessions on February 22nd and February 27th.  Both sessions will be held at The Community Foundation.

Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy

Members of Impact 100 Richmond (“Impact 100”) must insure that no personal or professional self interest interferes with their volunteer work on behalf of Impact 100. A conflict of interest can arise when a member, or someone in a member’s family, could personally gain, either financially or professionally, from an action taken by Impact 100.  For example, if an Impact 100 member or family member could receive a job, a business contract, or other personal benefits as a result of the Impact 100 grant being awarded to a certain nonprofit organization, then that member has a conflict of interest.

It is important to realize that simply serving on the board of a nonprofit that has applied for a grant from Impact 100 does not create a conflict of interest. However, disclosure of board positions and advisory positions is necessary to evaluate whether a conflict of interest exists. It is only in the situation in which a member, or her relative, would personally gain from the grant being given to the nonprofit organization that a conflict arises.

With five focus area committees available for member participation, it is recommended that members select committee participation that will avoid a conflict of interest.  In the event a member has a conflict of interest or perceived conflict of interest, she will advise her Committee Chair.  At the discretion of the Committee Chair, the Member may be excused from discussion on the matter.  In all circumstances, the member shall recuse herself from committee level vote related to that conflict. The member may participate in the annual balloting process of all members to determine the year’s final grantee(s).

Each Impact 100 member will not disclose confidential information acquired in connection with the volunteer work she does on behalf of Impact 100.  This includes information gained through site visits and/or grant applications
