Are donations to Impact100 tax deductible?

Impact100 is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Depending on your tax status, contributions are tax-deductible for the year in which they were made. You will receive a statement of contribution from Impact100 Nashville with the amount of your donation. Please consult your tax advisor.

I want to give more than the required membership donation. Do I get more than one vote?

Although additional gifts are always welcome, each Member is limited to one vote per person per year. But you can prepay your membership for subsequent years and/or sponsor others to join.

If my employer or my spouse’s employer has a matching program, will you accept this donation?

Yes, you can double your impact. We gratefully accept employer matching gifts. Donations matching your membership contribution play an important role, as they are applied toward program and operating costs. Please submit a matching request for your donation to your or your spouse’s employer. Some employers will also provide matching donations for retirees.

What role is there for me if I don’t want to become a member?

We welcome “Sponsors and Friends of Impact100 Nashville” and are thrilled when an individual, foundation, or corporation wants to help us through monetary or in-kind service donations. Although they do not provide voting rights, these donations help cover program and operating expenses that are essential to accomplishing our mission.
