Wendy Hoffman, president of Impact100 Sonoma accepts the Community Champion Award from Assemblyman Bill Dodd. The award recognizes Impact100 Sonoma for their efforts in helping to sustain and expand the work local non-profits do to serve those in need and build a stronger community.


Sonoma, CA—October 7, 2016—Assemblyman Bill Dodd made an appearance at Friday morning’s Sonoma Farmers’ Market to honor Impact100 Sonoma with his Annual Community Champion Award for their work in support of nonprofits in Sonoma Valley.

Dodd awards nonprofits and businesses that are doing great work in the communities that he represents, especially organizations that are thinking outside the box and are largely unsung.

“Impact100 Sonoma perfectly embodies the philanthropic spirit of Sonoma Valley,” said Assemblymember Bill Dodd. “Impact100 Sonoma does an amazing job helping to sustain and expand the work our local non-profits do to serve those in need and build a stronger community. It’s my pleasure to recognize the group and its members as true community champions.”

Wendy Hoffman, President of Impact100 Sonoma, accepted the award on behalf of the organization.

Impact100 Sonoma is a philanthropic organization started in August 2009 that brings together at least 100 women in a common purpose: to award an Impact Grant of $100,000 every year to a Sonoma Valley nonprofit organization that would otherwise not have access to that level of funding. Over the course of its five-year history, Impact100 Sonoma has awarded more than $1.7 million in grants to support non-profit organizations serving the Sonoma Valley.

Impact100 Sonoma is inviting women who want to make a difference in Sonoma Valley to join the organization. Information about joining can be found at or by calling 707-939-5007.
