Impact Nashville is a non-profit women’s giving circle that empowers women to collectively invest in and develop non-profits that serve our community so that we can create a greater Nashville.
Learn more about our members.
We Operate through women members who live in the Greater Nashville area and donate a $1000 tax-deductible membership fee. Those membership fees are then combined directly into large grant dollars that are awarded to non-profit organizations that serve Greater Nashville through a competitive grant process. The grant process and criteria are determined by the members and focus on categories that serve the Greater Nashville community and its future needs.
Our Long Term Goal is to grow to 500 members in order to award $500,000 annually. Each year we are committed to maintaining or growing membership so that we can continuously invest and build the capabilities of non-profits that serve Greater Nashville. 2015 was our first year – we were 26 members strong and awarded $26,000 to one lucky non-profit! In 2016, we had 43 members and awarded two $21,500 grants. For 2017, we reached 50 members and gave away $50,000.
Our Core Values
Collaboration. As a collective, women have the opportunity to create greater impact than as individuals.
Equal Participation. All women contribute the same amount and have the same decision-making power on how we allocate grant funding to non-profits.
Transparency. We strive to make the grant process transparent and fair for both the non-profits seeking funding and for the members who evaluate the applicants.
Development. We provide consultation to all nonprofits, regardless of the grant selection outcome. We commit to providing thorough feedback and insight in order for organizations to become more effective for future elections.
Fun. We strive to make Impact Nashville a community for women to connect in a unique way and most importantly, to be rewarding and enjoyable for all of our members.
