November 2021

With Thanksgiving upon us, we wanted to take a quick NY minute to express our tremendous gratitude to all of the incredible women of Impact 100 NYC. Not only did you join a brand new organization, you recruited your friends and family, you volunteered your time, you shared your opinions, you supported our grantees, and you made us what we are today. A special thanks to those members who rolled up their sleeves to help our grantee, Reaching Out Community Services, with Operation Gobbler, an annual event during which they deliver hundreds of turkeys and Thanksgiving dinners to families in need.

Don't let time run out - December 31 is the last day to renew your membership and be part of the 2022 grant cycle. If you haven't already done so, please renew now and help us achieve our goal of at least TWO $100,000 innovation grants in 2022. Sitting on a grant review committee, attending member only events, and having opportunities to partner with our grant recipients are just a few of the benefits of being an Impact 100 NYC member. But knowing that your donation will be part of a transformative grant to an organization in need is the true power of Impact 100 NYC.  


Join us on December 1 at 7:30 pm for the next installment of "Our Partners-Our Members" series where we'll be joined by Danielle Coffaro from our grant recipient, Reaching Out Community Services, who will be discussing food insecurity and the role of the community and social services in addressing the enormous need. Founding Member Amy Davidson will be leading the conversation.   


On Tuesday December 7th at 6 pm, we'll be hosting our second annual Members Only Networking Event. The event, which will be virtual, provides members the opportunity to connect with other like minded women in a fun and fast moving format.   


Like the Impact 100 NYC model, nextgen teens work together to learn about NYC nonprofits and award a collective grant. Know a teen in 8th-12th grade who is committed to helping those in need? Have them register to find out about upcoming events and other ways to get involved.


Our final "get to know us" is being held virtually on December 13 at 1 pm. This will be our last formal event for potential new members to learn about our organization so please pass along the details to anyone you think should know more about us. Our first two "get to know us" events had great turnouts and led to new members so we're hoping to keep the good going.
