Impact 100 Palm Beach County Announces 2022 Semi-Finalists

Impact 100 Palm Beach County (Impact 100 PBC) recently chose 21 nonprofit organizations for its 2022 semi-finalist. The groups, all with projects based in south Palm Beach County, have the opportunity to submit complete applications for one of multiple $100,000 high-impact grants.

“Impact 100 PBC has become a major grant funder,” says Holly Schuttler, President of Impact 100 PBC. “To date, we have given over $4.5 million in grant funds to assist local nonprofits and those most in need. These are funds that were not available to our community 11 years ago. Impact 100 PBC acts as a lifeline to these vital organizations.”

Impact 100 PBC is a women’s nonprofit organization that helps fund local nonprofit initiatives. It is comprised of a growing number of over 600 women who donate $1,000 annually, pool all funds and vote to award grants to nonprofits serving southern Palm Beach County in five focus areas: Arts, Culture and Historic Preservation; Education; Environment and Animal Welfare; Family; and Health and Wellness.

“Our mission in Impact 100 PBC is to improve our community by collectively funding impactful $100,000 grants to nonprofits in our area,” says Kelly Fleming, President-Elect of Impact 100 PBC. “Last year we had 652 members and we are hoping to reach 700 this year. The more members we have, the more money we can give to nonprofits in Palm Beach County. This ‘team philanthropy,’ where our funds are pooled together, makes a bigger impact than individual donations.”
