Women creating positive, lasting change in our community through collective giving.
Seven Grants Awarded by Impact 100 Martin in April and May Total $115,481
As previously reported, thanks to you, Impact 100 Martin is helping local nonprofits during the COVID-19 crisis. Our membership’s overwhelming vote to approve a one-time-only departure from our regular grant award process has allowed us to have an immediate impact on those who need assistance as a result of the pandemic.

To ensure the best and most efficient use of resources, Impact 100 Martin joined the COVID-19 Funders’ Consortium for Martin County, spearheaded by The Community Foundation Martin-St. Lucie.  At weekly Consortium discussions of new grant applications, decisions to award full or partial funding for a specific nonprofit application may be made directly by one or more of the Consortium funders. Given that the dollars needed far exceed funders' resources, it is not possible to fund all requests, and applications are not necessarily funded at the full amount requested.

Applications to the Consortium were low in May relative to April. Some nonprofit organizations are taking time to reassess their needs after receiving responses to their Paycheck Protection Program applications. Many are also reevaluating how to best provide services to the community in this new phase of businesses reopening and people starting to return to work. We are expecting a higher number of applications in June.

Impact 100 Martin and the other members of the COVID-19 Funders’ Consortium for Martin County have already awarded over $800,000 to 24 organizations! To date, $115,481 of the Impact 100 Martin grant funds ($224,000) has been awarded to the seven nonprofits below.

In addition, Impact has contributed $2,125 toward a $12,000 bulk purchase of needed supplies like masks, thermometers, bleach/disinfectants, paper towels, diapers and wipes requested by 12 area nonprofits.  The $2,125 is from Impact members who generously chose to donate rather than receive refunds for their paid Grant Awards Celebration tickets. 
House of Hope -- $12,484
Impact 100 funds will assist with operating expenses for their production farm and nutrition center which play important roles in HOH's ability to provide food, especially with the increased demand during the pandemic. We are one of five funders who together are fulfilling their total request of $52,869.

ARC of Martin County -- $21,323
Impact 100 funding paid for laptops to allow ARC to supervise their 11 residential locations remotely and cover additional services for 16 new clients they gained due to other agencies closing.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County -- $27,600
Funding was requested for technology, materials and supplies for a virtual academic enrichment program due to schools and clubs closing. 
Educational kits will be distributed to children in conjunction with meal distribution. We are one of three funders who together are fulfilling their entire virtual learning request of $65,600. Impact funds will cover 1,500 art kits, 1,500 social-emotional learning kits and nine Surface Pro tablets.
Council on Aging of Martin County - $15,000
Our funding will pay for an additional walk-in freezer for the Meals on Wheels program. This is needed to expand the capacity to meet the increased demand resulting from the pandemic.
Light of the World Charities -- $12,632
We funded their total request for 60 days of operating expenses. They are providing emergency dental services only. Staff continues to work remotely answering calls, assessing families’ needs, electronically submitting prescriptions and conducting daily operations, such as grant/loan applications and virtual in-service training.
Tykes & Teens -- $17,442
Impact 100 funds are being used to maintain the Youth Enrichment Services (YES) program, an established counseling program for pre-teens and adolescents who are struggling with alcohol, drugs or other dangerous behaviors. Like many nonprofits' programs, YES had a deficit due to a COVID-19-related reduction in revenue.

Volunteers in Medicine -- $9,000
Our funding will pay co-payments for clients who are unable to get needed medications donated by drug manufacturers. This is a service VIM currently provides and they are seeing an increase in demand for this support since the pandemic has caused clients to lose their jobs.
We will send the next Impact COVID-19 Grants Report at the end of June, and will continue to do so monthly until all grant funds are awarded.
Thank you 2020 Sponsors for your continued support.
