What is Impact 100 Richmond?

The Literacy Lab learning via Zoom last May that they received our 2020 $100,000 transformational grant.

To create positive change in Metro Richmond through high-impact, life-long, transformational grantmaking.

Impact 100 Richmond is a volunteer-driven, women's philanthropy group that makes a significant difference in our community through collective giving. We fund at least one $100,000 transformational grant each year to a local nonprofit that has a big idea and great potential but may not have access to large-scale funds. 

Since our inception in 2009, we have awarded $1,710,000 in significant grants to 20 local nonprofits and $50,000 to our neighborhood catalyst grant recipients. 


Membership is open to women of all ages, from all backgrounds and from all areas of Metro Richmond.
