What is IMPACT 100?

The concept of IMPACT100 is simple: 100 people donate and become members of the IMPACT100 “giving circle” to create a pool of funding that is granted out to support our communities. This collective giving program is designed to inspire a new generation of local philanthropists and to provide a platform for those who are interested in learning about charitable giving to become educated about the needs in the Yampa Valley and the organizations serving those needs. Come and enjoy dinner and drinks while you hear from nonprofits which are selected through the process of member nominations and steering committee interviews. The events are social, interactive, educational, and really fun! We encourage you to bring a friend and introduce them to the power of charitable giving. There are three events in the season, kicking off in late summer/early fall with the nominating event, presentation event in January/February and voting event in April.
