The women of Impact 100 are all volunteers. Some are very connected to the community, work in nonprofits, and will be familiar with current social issues. Some are not. It's important to know that multiple members review your application (good exposure to broad base of tri-state) and many are learning about the community issues your nonprofit is steeped in. I felt like my committee was rooting for my success, which was appreciate, despite the outcome.

Applied and not funded
There will be various contacts as you move through the Impact 100 grant cycle.
They are funding transformational grants, as intended.
Support for those who walk away empty handed would be helpful. It's a long process to only have exposure. Also, expressing exposure as the "win" in the process is not enough.
Reviewer 9862 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017
Make sure you review all of their requirements before applying. The grant application uses the Common Grant Application, which is very extensive. Think through your responses fully before preparing your application.

Grant currently pending
Excellent response times to all questions, emails, and phone calls.
Please give additional feedback for entities who are not funded, not chosen to move forward, or not invited to submit a full proposal. While all nonprofits understand that sometimes the pool of applicants is large, it is difficult to determine the true reason we are not chosen - and knowing whether our goals are not lofty enough, we don't match funding requirements, or if our financials are just not in the right range yet, would be very helpful as we discuss applying again.
Excellent response to all applicant questions.

It's best to attend an information session for Impact 100 and be sure to have someone external from your organization to read the application. This is a group of all volunteers with tons of eyes on your application; however, keep in mind that you apply by the end of one calendar year and won't have a grant agreement in hand until fall of the following calendar year.

Funded for greater amount
This was our fourth time applying before we were a finalist and grant recipient. On years that we did not move forward, we did not receive feedback.
This group of women's goal is to pull together resources and invest them in nonprofits that meet their funding priority areas. I'd say they are doing just that!
Open your doors and share more information about what your members and philanthropists are thinking about as relates to our applications.
This is all women reviewing your application so be sure to apply to educate others about your mission. If nothing else, there will be at least 20-some people who know about you now.
Level playing field. Once a finalist, they will ensure all information is shared across all finalists.
