Impact100 NWF Accepting 2021 NextGen Program ApplicationsMarch 19, 2021
The Impact100 NWF chapter was created in 2012 and has awarded $3.2 million in grants to local nonprofit organizations over the past nine years, including four $112,000 grants in 2020.
The mission of Impact100 of Northwest Florida, Inc. is to financially support nonprofit organizations in Okaloosa and Walton counties by empowering women as philanthropists and leaders, by bridging the geographic areas of our region, and by leveraging the talents of diverse women to be a positive force for good in our communities.
We are accepting 2021 applications for the NextGen Program.
The NextGen Program is open to women between the ages of 21 to 39 who may not have the financial resources to join Impact100 NWF. This program gives young woman an opportunity to become members of our organization and engage with the community while learning the lessons of philanthropy and leadership. The program aims to empower these women to be ambassadors for a generation that is dedicated to giving and serving in Okaloosa and Walton counties.
The NextGen Program Scholarship supplements half of the first year’s membership matching the NextGen member’s $500 donation, in the second year the scholarship cover’s $250 to supplement the member’s $750 donation, and the third year the member pays the full $1,000 membership. The NextGen recipient in return is expected to be an active and involved member.
They will have full membership privileges during the whole 3-year period to attend Impact100 NWF events, join a standing committee or grant review committee, and cast a vote to determine the grant finalists. They will be mentored by fellow members who are committed to improving the lives of others through service and philanthropy.
