Big News! Impact100 Sonoma Receives TWO Grants to Support Young Philanthropists

With support from Carrie Morgridge and the Morgridge Family Foundation, the Impact100 Council’s Young Philanthropist Program has awarded a second grant to Impact100 Sonoma.This new $1,600 grant will serve as partial scholarships (50%) to allow three women between the ages of 21 and 39 to participate in our organization in 2018, with the remaining $100 to offset administrative costs. Recipients of the grant are: Veronica Vences, Program Director at La Luz Center; Susana Garcia, Family Engagement Director for Parent University; and Betzy Chavez, Director of the La Luz Family Resource Center at El Verano Elementary School. We are most grateful for this grant, as it will help ensure that these young professionals can continue to participate in our giving circle through the 2018 membership year.
Due to the effort of member Meghan Marsh King, Impact100 Sonoma also received a $2,400 grant from the ROQUE Foundation specifically to support the NextGen Program. Based in Napa, the women-founded ROQUE Foundation creates opportunities for networking and learning through a quarterly meet-up, Fireside Social, and gives back to the community through their scholarship program. Grant funds will fully support two NextGen members (ages 25-35) and partially support a third member, with $600 in matching funds contributed by the general membership. The NextGen Program is currently accepting applications, due by October 1, and you can apply here. Impact100 Sonoma deeply appreciates the ROQUE Foundation for giving three young professionals an opportunity to become members of the 2018 NextGen Program.
