Impact100 Nashville awards grants to nonprofits in our community that address the focus area stipulated in our Eligibility Criteria. Eligible nonprofits may submit a Letter of Intent to apply for grant funding of up to $100,000. We recommend reading our eligibility criteria before proceeding.
Member volunteers review and score Letters of Intent based on 4 criteria before selecting a subset of organizations to complete a full grant application:
1. Overall mission, vision of organization
2. Meeting unique need in the community
3. Proposed use of grant dollars
4. Shows clear programming specific to the focus area identified each year.
May 30 – June 17: Call for Letter of Intent Submissions
July 25 – August 26: Grant Application Open for Selected Organizations
October 3 – October 20: Site Visits for Semi Finalist Grant Applications
November 3: Annual Voting Event and Celebration
All stages of the grant review process are conducted entirely by current members of Impact100 Nashville.
Impact100 Nashville will award a grant up to $100,000 to a non-profit organization that seeks to end the cycle of any debilitating condition — homelessness, poverty, addiction, hunger, illiteracy, human trafficking, recidivism, etc. Specifically we are seeking to award this grant to the non-profit that offers creative and innovative services to its population to facilitate the transition out of a cyclical lifestyle and is able to show that results of their services ended the cycle for the population it serves.
The Grants Committee ultimately selects two to three finalists to compete for each $100,000 grant at our Annual Meeting in the Fall.
