Serving on a Grant Review Committee (GRC) is one of the most impactful ways to participate in Impact100 Sonoma, learn about the nonprofit organizations and needs of our community and experience the grant review process.
What do Impact100 Sonoma Grant Review Committees do?
Grant Review Committees are established annually for the winter/spring grant review season. Committee members read and review grant applications and participate in a thorough vetting process that leads to recommending finalists to be voted on by the entire membership.
Is there a calendar for the grant review committees? How much time does it take?
To address the urgent needs of our nonprofit community, our grant review season will take place on a shortened timeline this year, from January – April 2022. We anticipate that most meetings will be held in-person, though some may be held via Zoom. Committee members will be expected to devote approximately 15-20 hours of their time to the process. The 2022 Grant Review Committee Calendar is on the right-hand side of this page.
