IMPACT 100 – The Next Generation of Giving

What is IMPACT 100?

Donate/Join IMPACT100

The concept of IMPACT100 is simple: 100 people donate $100 each, creating a pool of $10,000 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. In a typical year, the four events each season are hosted at a great venue (think Steamboat Art Museum, Bella Vista, or Perry Mansfield), dinner and drinks are included, and participants hear from four 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.

  • 100% of each member’s tax-deductible donation goes directly to support the local community thanks to our event sponsors. Thank you to our 2020/2021 sponsors: Russ and Shine Atha, Advanced Copier Solutions, Glas Deffryn Ranch, Kathryn Pedersen-Fidelity Mortgage, Cindy MacGray-Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty and Yampa Valley Bank.
  • All IMPACT100 members vote at the final social event of the year to determine the recipients of the IMPACT 100 Fund grants.
  • The four events per season are held September, November, February, and April. You can join at anytime and do not need to wait for the next season to start.
  • Selected local nonprofit organizations make casual, educational presentations at the social events.
At IMPACT100’s closing event of Season 15 in April 2021, $11,500 was awarded to four deserving nonprofit organizations. IMPACT100 is a collective giving program designed to inspire a new generation of philanthropists. Each year a selection of nonprofits introduce their work to the group and, at the end of the season, a vote determines the allocation of funds. Congratulations to Routt County Crisis Support, Routt County Council on Aging, BookTrails and Come As You Are for being recognized for their incredible work serving our local communities!
