Impact100 Sonoma has two annual grant award programs: one $100,000 Impact Grant (and Impact Grant Finalist awards of $10,000), and approximately ten Community Grants of $5,000 to $20,000.
Below are brief summaries of the rules and processes. For detailed information, use the links to the left.
$100,000 Impact Grant
Community Grants are between $5,000 and $20,000 in any category. Grants may be spent over two years.
A Community Grant can fund an existing program, the expansion of an existing program, or a new program/project. It can also fund planning or collaboration as well as the testing of a new idea or a pilot program. A Community Grant can fund a short-term project or can provide critical pilot data necessary to support a proposal for the $100,000 Impact Grant in the following grant year. It may also provide infrastructure support or capacity building. Community Grants may fund any capital item or capital-intensive project an organization wishes to implement to enhance its operations or improve its programs/services, although we do not support capital or endowment campaigns. (A capital expenditure is an asset that the nonprofit intends to hold and derive benefit from for a period of at least one year, and that the organization depreciates or amortizes over the asset's expected life.)
