We are a dynamic leader of women’s philanthropy: bringing new resources to the community and making philanthropy accessible. Through strategic high-impact grant making, we engage, develop and inspire women to create change in our community.
For the past several years this message has been a growing part of the philanthropic landscape in southern Palm Beach County. Deborah Johnson and Bridget Baratta decided one year ago it was time to launch an Impact 100 group that would benefit the rest of Palm Beach County. The venture philanthropy effect is making a big impact with a targeted investment of $100,000 Impact grants to area non-profits. This model had great appeal as it leveraged the power of efficient, collaborative and highly focused philanthropy – driven by women.
Impact The Palm Beaches is not just a matter of facilitating generosity, it is a matter of harnessing the power of women each of whom commit $1,000, to effect social change in our community. Serving the central and northern Palm Beach County community through high impact grants to local nonprofits. Each year at the annual meeting, nonprofit finalists are invited to speak, Impact 100 members vote, and $100,000 funds are awarded that evening.
