Drive Our Impact: Join a 2018 Grants Committee

One of the most fulfilling ways to participate as an Impact100 Sonoma member is to serve on a Grants Review Committee – this is the core of our mission as a giving circle.  “Being a part of the Grants Committee process was extremely rewarding,” said member Linda Dougherty. “I learned so much about the local nonprofits, the needs of the community and really got to know some wonderful Impact100 members who I would not otherwise have met.”
The Grants team is actively recruiting Grants Review Committee members for the 2018 grants cycle.  Committees kick off in late January with an orientation session followed by 3 – 4 committee meetings February to May, including at least one site visit to a candidate nonprofit organization.  Committees review grant applications and select the finalists that will be presented to our entire membership for voting.  You can serve on either a Community Grants (up to $20K), or an Impact Grant (the single $100K grant) Review Committee.
No prior experience is needed to join.  The process is engaging and enlightening and helps our members engage more deeply with one another and our Sonoma Valley nonprofits. You can learn more on our website: Grants Review Committee membership.
These committee spots are limited in number.  We will start a waitlist
as soon as they are filled. Please contact Robin Layton at and indicate if you are interested in Community Grants, the Impact Grant, if you are fine with either one, or
if you’d like someone to contact you for more information.
Many thanks!
The Grants Team
