Congratulations to the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) for their 2022 Impact grant of $100,000!
The funds will support community college students who have experienced foster care. The dollars will increase the emergency funds to overcome students' short-term financial challenges. It will also expand the outreach program to enroll more students in our region's community colleges who may need extra support.
We were also able to provide $4,000 grants to each of our other finalists!

In addition to our primary grant of $100,000 to a local nonprofit, Impact 100 has also donated funds directly to a specific Richmond neighborhood through the Neighborhood Catalyst Grant, introduced in 2018. This grant awarded $25,000 a year over four years to the Greater Fulton Community. Click below to read more about the success of this unique philanthropic effort.
