What is IMPACT100?

The concept of IMPACT100 is simple: 100 people donate and become members of the “giving circle,” creating 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 provide a platform to become educated about nonprofit organizations addressing needs in the Yampa Valley.

During the three social and educational events of the season, enjoy complimentary dinner and drinks while you hear from nonprofits and meet others interested in charitable giving. Join at any time; you do not need to wait for the next season to start. A schedule of the season:

  • Nominating Event – Learn about IMPACT100, meet your fellow circle of givers, meet nonprofits from around the valley and nominate an organization of your choice to be considered for IMPACT100 funding
  • Presentation Event– “Speed dating” event, where you will hear from a variety of nonprofits, learn about their mission and programs, and how IMPACT100 funding could help them in their work. Vote on which nonprofit you would like to hear from as a finalist at the voting event.
  • Voting Event – The three organizations who are selected at the 2nd event as finalists will present how their organizations would benefit from funding. Paid members vote to determine how your IMPACT100 funds will be allocated among the finalists

100% of each member’s tax-deductible donation goes directly to support the local community thanks to our event sponsors, who cover all expenses for food, drinks and venues. We encourage you to bring a friend and introduce them to the power of charitable giving.
