Five area nonprofits will now be able to better serve the community thanks to $525,000 in grants from Impact 100 Baldwin County.
At its annual Evening of Impact on Nov. 2, Impact 100 Baldwin County named Baldwin Pops Inc. (Funding the Beginning of Music…1,2,3); Baldwin County Education Coalition Inc. (Expansion of Palm Project); Mobile Baykeeper Inc. (Oyster Garden Project); Youth-Reach Gulf Coast (Equipment to Empower); and Prodisee Pantry Inc. (Cultivating Healthy Options in a Food Desert) as its grant winners.
These five agencies were chosen from the focus areas of arts and culture and recreation; education; environment and preservation; family; and health and wellness. They will each receive $105,000.
The nonprofits were selected from a competitive field of applicants and vetted by a rigorous review process including site visits, financial analysis and in-depth discussions within the respective focus group. The finalists made a short presentation about their projects at the annual meeting. Members voted last week for who they found most compelling, and the results were announced at the end of the event.
“Today is one of my favorite days of the year,” said Sandy Stepan, Impact 100 Baldwin County president. “We award life-changing grants and get to hear about some of the great work being done throughout Baldwin County.”
Tonight’s awards bring the total invested in our community to $5.5 million since 2008. It also kicks off the membership campaign for 2024.
Events will be held throughout the county in the coming months for women interested in learning more about membership.
