In 2021, Impact100’s Grant process will be shortened to three months in order to help nonprofits as quickly as possible. Outlined here are the five distinct phases, and the steps you need to follow for each of them
Impact100 requires applicants to complete a simple online grant application. For ease of completing it, we have provided a downloadable copy of the questions in order to work offline.
Impact 100 also requires a number of other documents to be submitted in PDF, as follows:
The following forms should be filled in and saved as a PDF. Later, the applicant will have the opportunity to upload them within the application form.
The applicant will receive acknowledgment of receipt of its application within 24 hours. An Impetus Grant Chair will inform the applicant if anything is missing.
Impact 100 reserves the right to reject a grant application for any reason, including a missed deadline or incomplete information.
2. Financial Review
The Financial Review Committee (FRC) is responsible for taking an in-depth look at the grant applicant’s financials prior to a site visit. FRC members review the financial health of the organization. In 2021 the FRC will focus on durability, defined as the likelihood that the applicant will remain in operation for a minimum of another 18 months. Based on all of the provided financial information, the FRC votes on whether or not to approve the grant applicant to move forward in the process. Questions and concerns are addressed during the site visit.
3. Site Visit Candidates
The objective of a site visit is to complete a due diligence review and to resolve any remaining questions about the organization and its proposal.
Organizations will be notified whether they have been selected as finalists by March 8, 2021.
5. Grantee Reporting
We invite you to tell us about the progress of your grant proposal at our all-member Grants Update meeting in Spring 2022. We also ask you to submit a report at the end of the grant period; report forms are found here.
