Impact 100 awards $404K in grants

Impact 100 announced the winners of four grants for 2016 during a reception.

They are: Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship, Greater Cincinnati Construction Foundation, St. Francis Seraph Ministries & Center for Respite Care, and Women’s Crisis Center.

Each organization received $101,500 to fund a significant, transformational project.

Nearly 400 attended the reception at Xavier University’s Schiff Conference & Banquet Center.

Impact 100 is made up of women who pool funds for grants that can make more of an impact than what they might give individually. One hundred percent of each $1,000 annual Impact 100 membership contribution goes directly to fund grants. Members study potential recipients, narrow the field to a group of finalists, then vote on the winners.

This marks the second year Impact 100 has funded four grants, bringing its investment in the Tri-State region to $3.6 million since its inception in 2001.
