Each year, our member volunteers form five grant review committees (also referred to as GRCs), which represent the five focus areas of Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Family and Health and Wellness. Between the months of February and May, each committee works together carefully reviewing proposals, conducting site visits and identifying the most qualified applicant to represent as a finalist at the annual Big Give celebration in May. Following Finalist presentations, our members use a voting system to determine the grant recipients. Throughout the grants review season, our committees work closely with The Community Foundation to implement a professional and seamless grant process.
Become A Grant Review Committee Volunteer
In this important volunteer role, members will work through our comprehensive process of determining our annual grant Finalists. The volunteer commitment is approximately 3 hours per week between early March and mid May. This role is perfect for any member who wants to deepen their Impact 100 involvement, learn about nonprofits and community issues, and build fellowship with other Impact members.
