Impact100 Nashville’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, support nonprofits, and highlight unmet needs in our community. Through grant-making, we invest in nonprofits financially and by partnering with them to familiarize ourselves with their programs, services, and the communities they serve. In return, our partners assure us our process allows them to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do and the impact they have.
2019 Grant Recipient:
Sexual Assault Center
Ending the Cycle
The Sexual Assault Center opened its doors in 1978. Today, it is the only place in Middle Tennessee that is exclusively dedicated to providing counseling to child and adult sexual assault victims. In addition, the Center has programs that educate students on how to recognize and prevent sexual assault. The grant is funding the “Prevention 2-22 Project” aiming to break the cycle of intergenerational child sex abuse in Nashville via a multifaceted communication campaign and the delivery of in-person and web-based training options.
Family Reconciliation Center is a guesthouse in Nashville that provides free overnight rooms to those visiting an incarcerated loved one. The Center is using the grant to expand their outreach to more families and to make physical improvements to the property.
Nashville Peacemakers is working to give children a vision for their future before they are lost forever. The organization is using the grant to facilitate their Straight Talk program, helping teach inner-city children about anti-violence. The grant will also provide mental health professionals for sibling survivors and mothers of those lost to gun violence.
