Outlined here are the five distinct phases of Impact100’s grant process and the steps needed to follow for each of them.

Impact100 uses an online grants management platform in order to facilitate the entire application process. Please register at our online Grant Portal to access the application.

2. Financial Review
The Financial Review Committee (FRC) is responsible for reviewing the grant applicant’s financial position and grant budget prior to a site visit. FRC members review the general financial viability of the organization, including cash flow, strength of other revenue sources, reasonableness of expenses in relation to the size and strength of the organization, and reasonableness of the grant request amount in relation to the other factors described above, and any other relevant factors. Based on that review, the FRC determines whether or not to move the grant application forward in the process, including whether to recommend if an applicant should also be considered for the Encore Grant.
3. Grant Review and Site Visits
Grant Review Committees (GRCs), comprising Impact100 Sonoma Members) are responsible for assessing the grant applications, conducting diligence reviews, and determining which applications will ultimately be selected as finalists for Impetus Grants and the Encore Grant.
Organizations will be notified whether they have been selected as finalists for an Impetus Grant or both an Impetus Grant and the Encore Grant, by April 1, 2024.
5. Grantee Reporting
We invite Impetus Grant recipients (other than the Encore Grant recipient) to tell us about the progress of their grant proposal at our all-member Grant Recipient Update Meeting in the fall of 2024. The Encore Grant Recipient will be asked to report on the progress of their grant proposal the following year. We will also ask recipients to submit a report (via our Grant Portal) at the end of the applicable grant period.
All dates subject to change. Locations to be announced.
