September 2022

Our 2023 membership drive is underway and our grant process is kicking off. We hope you'll scroll down to learn more about the important things we have going on and sign up to join us at some or all or them.

Key highlights:

  • Our Annual Kick-Off Event is just around the corner. This is one of our signature events for the 2023 giving cycle so we hope to see you there! 
  • Our Young Professional Social Event is being held on September 28th. Members and guests are welcome to attend this event so spread the word and bring a +1.

Details for both of these and other events are below. Also, keep an eye out for future emails as we have more exciting things in the works and want to make sure you know about them.

Our Annual Kick-Off Event is less than a month away! We are thrilled to announce that it is being held at The Greenwich Lane on October 19th. In case you weren't able to make it last year, the Annual Kick-Off provides a chance to meet and hear from prior grantees, enjoy a glass of wine with other Impact 100 NYC members, learn about our 2023 giving cycle and ways to get involved, and celebrate all that we are doing for NYC. It's also a great opportunity to bring a friend who may want to hear more about the work that we are doing. We hope to see you there!


Calling All Members 35ish and Younger!

We are excited to be hosting our first ever Young Professional Social Event, and even more thrilled that the Idealist organization has donated their space for this occasion. It's a great chance to mingle with other young professionals and spread the word about the work we're doing and the impact we're making. 


Come hear from Carolyn Silver and Sasha-Lee Lewin of Futures and Options, one of our 2022 Innovation Grant Recipients, and some of their students, about the ways in which they support underserved students interested in pursuing careers in healthcare and create pathways that lead them to success. This event will be virtual and is open to members and non-members.


Our cutoff for the 2023 grant cycle is December 31. But why wait until the last minute? Renew now to ensure you continue to help us make an impact!
