Impact100 Philadelphia has opened applications for its 2018 grant cycle.
The giving circle awards grants of about $100,000 to nonprofits with focus areas of arts and culture, family, education, environment, or health and wellness.
Impact100 changed up its grant structure last year by no longer requiring its funding be used for programming: Awards are now called “core mission grants,” and while they’re not exactly unrestricted, they can be applied to organizational needs such as facilities upgrades, operations, staff support or technology. The shift was inspired by a growing trend toward trust-based grantmaking.
2017’s winners were Interim House, Attic Youth Center, Community Volunteers in Medicine, Philadelphia Young Playwrights and the National Audubon Society. The 2018 winners will be announced in June. Check out the eligibility requirements here.
