GRANT INFORMATION

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
We invite applicants to submit a proposal that best serves their core mission and target community. The Impact Grant does not need to align to a focus area. The $100,000 Impact Grant can be spent over three years.  Each proposal will be reviewed as described below.

Community Grants

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.)

Review Process

Impact Grants
Applications will be assigned to an Impact Grant Review Committee for review. The vetting process within each committee is consistent: a review of the full proposal, review of the financials by the Financial Review Committee, and site visits. At the end of this process, the committee meets to select a slate of finalists to present to the entire membership for their vote.
