Impact 100 Redwood Circle 2016 Community Grants Announced

Impact 100 Redwood Circle has awarded $5,000 to five local nonprofits in support of the outstanding programs they provide to the community. The five grant recipients are:

  • Community Support Network’s Sanctuary House
  • PALS (Paws as Loving Support) assistance dog program
  • Sonoma County Public Library Foundation’s free bookmobile
  • SRJC Foundation’s HEP (High School Diploma) program
  • UC Cooperative Extension Sonoma’s food recovery coalition

 

These “community grants” are a continuation of Impact 100’s inaugural year of operation. The group presented a $100,000 grant to VOICES in May 2016 and, due to the rapid growth in membership, were able to quickly establish this smaller-scale grant program.

 

“It’s so inspiring that more than 100 women came together in our inaugural year to collectively fund $125,000 in grants that will make a lasting impact in our community,” said Melissa Kelley, co-founder of Impact 100 Redwood Circle. “The commitment, compassion and hard work of our members has created a sustainable, valuable and effective organization. We look forward to announcing our second $100,000 Impact Grant on May 6, 2017.”
