8.1 The Five Impact 100 Focus Areas

The Five Focus Areas were designed to be interpreted in the broadest possible way. There should not be a nonprofit in the community whose mission would not fall under (at least one) of the Focus Areas. For review, here they are:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Education
  • Environment, Preservation & Recreation
  • Family
  • Health & Wellness

These broad Focus Areas make us more inclusive. Women who care about each of these areas will be encouraged to join us. Nonprofits serving any of these areas would be encouraged to apply. The goal of every Impact100 organization is to have at least 500 members, so we can give one grant in each Focus Area every year. Our Focus Areas encourage more women to join and more nonprofits to apply. They are a vital part of the Impact100 model.
