We strongly encourage all applicants to attend one of two Non-Profit Information Sessions, scheduled for March 28 and April 4, 2018. The invitation and a preview of information we will share with you at those sessions is posted here: Impact100 NP Info Session Invitation, Non Profit Info Session 2018
Impact 100 East Bay uses a 3-step application process: 1) a Letter of Intent (LOI), 2) a full Grant Application, including financials, and 3) a site visit.
Members of the Grant Committee will review and evaluate all LOI’s received and invite select agencies to proceed to a full Grant Application. Similarly, Grant Committee members will then review and evaluate the full Grant Applications, determining the semi-finalists who will receive a site visit.
Applicants who are selected for a site visit will work with a Grant Committee liaison to schedule a convenient date and time for a small group of members to visit their site. Site visit guidelines will be distributed in advance of the visit.
Following these visits, finalists will be selected by the Grant Committee and endorsed by the Board of Directors. Finalists will have several weeks to prepare a brief presentation, following guidelines to be distributed at that time.
After listening to all finalist presentations at the annual Award Gala, all members will vote by individual, anonymous ballot. This vote will determine the grant recipient(s).
