Impact100 SRQ is a local nonprofit 501(c)3, all-volunteer organization, founded in 2018 by three Sarasota-based women inspired by a growing international model of women’s collective giving. One by one, other women joined the journey, and together their mission empowers women to change the face of philanthropy in the local community. In 2023, Impact100 SRQ is celebrating its 5th giving year, having already funded 15 grants aggregating a total of $1,637,000 donated to local nonprofits since 2019. 

The Impact100 SRQ model is simple. Every year, at least 100 women come together, each make a $1,000 tax-deductible donation, and collectively they fund grants in increments of at least $100,000 to local nonprofits in five focus areas: Arts, Culture & History; Education; Environment & Recreation; Family; and Health & Wellness.  

The women of Impact100 SRQ combine their time, talent, and treasure, to make a greater impact in strengthening the community. Every year nonprofits in Sarasota and Manatee Counties are invited to apply for an Impact100 SRQ grant. All Impact members are encouraged to volunteer their time on a committee to impartially review and extensively evaluate each initiative. These committees then determine finalists from each focus area to present to the full membership for a final vote to decide collectively which grants will be funded.

All members of Impact100 SRQ are encouraged to design their own experience. As an all-volunteer organization, there is an opportunity for members to get involved as much or as minimally as they desire. Most importantly and uniquely, all members have a voice in deciding which grants will be funded.

The passion that the women of Impact100 SRQ share for problem solving in our community is extraordinary. The more women who join the organization, the more grants Impact100 SRQ can fund. Joining is open to all women of all backgrounds, all ages, and all stages of life.
