Women’s Collective Opens Sixth Grant Season
Impact Giving will be accepting grant application requests – sponsored by Impact Giving partners – now through Nov. 10.
Founded in Laguna Beach, Impact Giving is a women’s collective giving group that in the last five years has awarded $606,000 to 33 local and global nonprofit organizations, impacting the lives of more than 30,000 people around the world.
“All non-profit organizations that are considered for grants each year must be sponsored by an Impact Giving Partner. A Partner is what we call our members because we are all partnering together in donating,” said board chair Ann Duncan Levy. “We then train our partners to review and vet the grant applications on grant committees. This helps us ensure that we are well educated on the non-profits that become grant finalists.”
