The Founders Fellowship
Impact 100 NYC created the Founders Fellowship to encourage and enable young women of diverse backgrounds and lived experiences to become involved in philanthropy and to bring vital perspectives to our organization, membership and partners.
Available to women from the five boroughs, under the age of 35, and interested in addressing the vital needs of our community. Each fellowship opens a door to experiencing the power of collective giving and understanding the social issues that affect New York City.
Preference will be given to women for whom the individual membership donation of $1000 might pose a hardship. The Founders Fellowship provides a three-year path to membership, beginning with a one-year commitment, in which the fellow’s membership is covered 100% by Impact 100 NYC. In Year two, fellows make a $250 contribution and in Year Three a $450 contribution, with the balances covered by Impact 100 NYC.
The 2022-23 Founders Fellowship application is open now through August 31st, 2022.
The Fellow will be selected by September 15th, 2022 and will participate in the grant review and selection process, the core initiative of Impact 100 NYC, beginning in January, 2023.
