Atlanta, Georgia, October 18, 2023 – Impact100 Atlanta, a local women’s collective giving nonprofit, will award three $91,000 grants this year to exceptional local nonprofit organizations to drive positive change within the Atlanta community. The organization’s collective giving model empowers women to respond to the needs of the local community in an intentional and impactful way. Impact100 members pool their resources to fund high impact grants, together making a greater change than any one woman could do alone. In 2022, Impact100 Atlanta’s inaugural year, 130 founding members funded a single high impact grant of $130,000.

Impact100 Atlanta is excited to share the five finalists for the prestigious awards, each representing one of Impact100 Atlanta’s 5 focus areas: Arts & Culture; Education; Environment, Preservation & Recreation; Family; and Health & Wellness. These finalists were selected from among 100 applicants, based on their demonstrated commitment and capacity for changing lives in the Atlanta community through transformational, innovative, and sustainable projects. “Our finalists represent nonprofits that are dreaming big to effect positive change in Atlanta,” said Sarah Levitt, President of Impact100 Atlanta. “Through our collective giving, we aim to support these remarkable organizations and their transformative initiatives, making a lasting impact on the local community.”
The recipients of the 3 grants will be determined through a member vote at Impact100 Atlanta’s annual meeting on November 16, 2023, underscoring the organization’s commitment to supporting impactful change in the local community.
