Whether you want to simply write a check or become deeply involved, Impact 100 Baldwin County welcomes all women who want to make a difference, learn about philanthropy, and connect with other women actively creating a better community for all who live here.
Your $1,000 membership contribution is pooled with other members’ contributions to fund grants that we award annually to Baldwin County nonprofits. Our goal is to award $100,000 grants in each of our five focus areas: Arts, Culture & Recreation; Education; Environment & Preservation; Family; and Health & Wellness.
Every penny of your tax-deductible membership contribution is used for grants because we are an all-volunteer organization.
What are the membership requirements?
They are actually very simple
Be a woman over the age of 18, and
Make your annual membership contribution of $1,000 by March 31. (Women who join after March 31 will be considered members the following year. In the meantime, they may participate in all activities except voting.)
What are my membership obligations?
While your only membership obligation is to make your $1,000 contribution by March 31, we hope that you will also vote to select grant recipients. Beyond that, the extent of your involvement is totally up to you. Since we are an all-volunteer organization, we rely on the time and talents our members can share with us. Consider getting involved in a committee whether membership, technology, communications or some other area; reviewing grants; attending events; or helping with one of our done-in-a-day projects.
What are the membership benefits?
The most important benefit is your awareness that you are improving lives in your community and making it a more vital, dynamic place to live. As a member you can:
Maximize your individual donation of $1,000 by turning it into a $100,000 investment in your community
Vote on where grant money is awarded
Become a part of a dynamic organization where you can build new connections, develop deep friendships and learn from other amazing women
Increase your knowledge of our community and the nonprofits who deliver vital services to the county
Enjoy a variety of exclusive private and public events, both social and educational, throughout the year including our big Celebration, the Annual Grant Awards, Just for Fun socials, and Girlfriends Guide informational programs
Relish mental and social stimulation by sharing your personal and professional talents and skills with us.
Please note that membership for 2023 is now closed. Members who join after the March 31st deadline will be joining for 2024, and are welcomed to attend member events but cannot vote on the grant recipients at the annual grant awards event in the fall.
