Apply for an Innovation Grant
Impact 100 NYC’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach underserved populations, highlight unmet needs in our area and raise the profile of deserving but lesser known initiatives. To support this important work and allow organizations to “dream big,” Impact 100 NYC will annually award $100,000 grants to local nonprofits. Total funding will be determined by the number of members who contribute $1,000 each towards the grants. Grant finalists are determined through a detailed process of proposal review and evaluation by members, and the grant recipients are chosen by a vote of the membership at the Impact 100 NYC Annual Meeting in May.
Applying for a grant starts with a Letter of Inquiry. Letters of Inquiry will only be accepted online beginning in October and will be due in November. We strongly recommend that you read carefully through our Eligibility Criteria, Grant FAQs, Application Process and Important Dates before submitting an online application here.
