The Grant Process
The Impact 100 PBC Grants Committee reviews Letters of Inquiry and makes recommendations on inviting submissions of full proposals to the Impact 100 PBC Board of Directors. After full proposals are received from selected applicants, they are reviewed, rated, and site visits are conducted. Based upon final recommendations of the Grants Committee, the Impact 100 PBC Board of Directors invites five (5) finalists to its annual meeting pending approval by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties Board of Directors. At the annual meeting, one finalist representing each focus area makes a brief presentation about their high impact project. A vote is then taken and final decision made immediately following the presentation. That decision is final.
To determine whether you are eligible to apply for an Impact 100 grant, please review the information in the Grant and Eligibility Guidelines.
