IMPACT NASHVILLE GRANTS $101,000 TO LOCAL NONPROFITS

In 2019, the women of Impact Nashville voted to gift grants to three Nashville-area non-profits. The 101 members, contributing a total of $101,000 in donations,  chose to make one contribution to a nonprofit focused on “ending a cycle” of debilitating conditions like homelessness, poverty, addiction, abuse, etc. and two nonprofits that were in the startup phase or operating on a limited budget.

Member committees reviewed and evaluated grant applications, conducted site visits and selected four finalists for consideration by the general membership. Those four finalists presented at the member voting event on November 7, 2019.

The Sexual Assault Center received $50,000. Two organizations – Family Reconciliation Centerand Nashville Peacemakers –each received $25,500.  The check signing ceremony took place on December 11, 2019 at Barge Design Solutions.
