About Scholarship Memberships

We are pleased to offer scholarship memberships to women who understand and believe in Impact100’s model and mission, but who may not have the financial means to cover the full membership donation.

Financial support for the membership donation – which is funded by Impact100 members and friends, as well as corporate matches and donations – is intended to nurture philanthropic giving among women in every season of life. Women who receive scholarship memberships may fully participate in Impact100 Greater Wausau’s collective giving.

Please note:

  • Scholarship memberships are limited and based upon funds available. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be funded.
  • Decisions will be made, and recipients notified, by December 15 each year.
  • Applications received after the deadline will not be eligible for consideration unless funds remain after applications received by the deadline have been vetted.
  • Scholarship membership recipients will enjoy full membership privileges during the scholarship period, including the ability to be considered for a leadership position.
  • Impact100 Greater Wausau will not disclose the names of members granted scholarship memberships outside of the Board of Directors and Scholarship Membership Committee.
  • The Impact100 Greater Wausau Board of Directors reserves the right to amend or suspend this program without notice, at any time.

Scholarship Membership Program Goals

In awarding scholarship memberships, Impact100 Greater Wausau seeks women who:

  • Represent diversity in their backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.
  • Bring to the organization unique knowledge, talents, and strengths that they have developed professionally or through volunteerism.
  • Aspire to grow as leaders and philanthropists.

Scholarship memberships are available for women who have passion for actively participating in Impact100 Greater Wausau’s mission of collective giving, but whose budgets cannot accommodate the full $1,100 donation.
