How should I submit my application?

Interested nonprofits should submit a preliminary application to grants@greaterwausau.impact100council.org no later than February 4th, 2021. Selected nonprofits will receive notification of the next steps no later than February 18th, 2021.

Can our organization submit applications in more than one Focus Area?

No, each organization may submit only one grant application per year and must choose the one Focus Area in which the proposal will be considered.

The funding we need for our proposal is more than the grant Impact100 offers. Can we combine our Impact100 grant with income from other sources?

Yes. You will be able to identify the additional funding sources for your proposal on the form.

The funding we need for our proposal is less than the $100,000 grant Impact100 offers. Can we submit a proposal for less than the full amount?

No, applicants must plan to expend the full $100,000 grant.

Will you consider a proposal from a group of organizations collaborating on a project or program?

Yes. One of the collaborating organizations must be the “lead organization,” applying on behalf of the collaboration. The lead organization must be willing to take on all the potential rights, responsibilities, restrictions, and liabilities of the grant if it is received.

Do you give grants to proposals that expend the funds over a period of years?

No, Impact100 seeks proposals that expend grant funds within 24 months.

Will the grant be paid in a lump sum?

Impact100 disburses the grant money as a one-time payment or as an installment payment, depending on what they deem to be the most fiscally responsible. A grant applicant may request either type of payment in the application.
