How should I submit my application?

Applications are submitted online. See our Grants page to apply.

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

You may submit more than one application if you have more than one program, assuming each program meets all requirements of the proposal.

The funding we need for our proposal is more than the grant Impact100 offers. Can we submit a proposal for more?

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

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.

Will you consider requests from small nonprofits that are relatively new?

Yes!  We are happy you’re considering work with Impact 100.  As long as you’re meeting the minimum requirements for the grant application, we are happy to review your response to the proposal.

What if my grant request spans one or more of your focus areas?

Make the best judgement with regard to focus area and we will evaluate.  Your application can be considered for multiple focus areas, and you’re welcome to denote that in the application, as well.
