The women of Impact 100 Palm Beach County championed the “power of giving as one” on April 24, voting to support a program that helps children who are abruptly removed from their homes and placed into foster care.
Impact 100 members came together at their inaugural annual meeting at Lynn University in Boca Raton and awarded their first $100,000 grant to the Parent-Child Center, a nonprofit organization that promotes the social and emotional well being of children and families.
“Impact 100 PBC is thrilled that our ‘power of giving as one’ is doing exactly what it intended — being part of creating transformational solutions,” stated Cindy Krebsbach, co-founder of Impact 100 PBC. “We are truly excited to support the Parent-Child Center’s trauma team with our first transformational grant.”
Impact 100 was created with the idea that every woman gives $1,000 annually, their contributions are pooled together and a nonprofit organization is selected to receive a $100,000 grant.
Sixty-six applicants applied for the grant within five key funding categories: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Family, Health and Wellness. Five nonprofits were selected to present to the Impact 100 PBC members at their annual meeting, where an electronic vote was cast and counted. Runner-up organizations were The Milagro Center, Anti-Defamation League, Florida Fishing Academy and the Urban League of Palm Beach County. They each received a $12,000 grant.
