Member Connection

June, 2022

It's a New Impact Year!

At the April 2022 board meeting, the I100MD Board of Directors voted to align our fiscal calendar to our operating calendar - officially moving I100 MD to a June 1 - May 31 fiscal year. Because our grant year has always ended with the Big Give award event in late May, the fiscal year change will enable us to extend our membership payment deadline closer to the Big Give, allowing more women to participate in collective giving. Look for more detailed information, including 2023 key grant cycle dates, coming soon.

I100 MD Happy Hour with Heart!

June 7th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Detroit Shipping Company, 474 Peterboro Street, Detroit


Join the 2022 Board as we celebrate $281,000 in grants!

Together, all of us at Impact100 Metro Detroit awarded $100,000 grants to Lighthouse of Michigan AND the Midnight Golf Program, as well as $27,000 grants to Corktown Health, Living Arts Detroit, and the Pontiac Community Foundation.  

This year's grants bring our total giving to over one million dollars since 2016. We could not have done this without terrific leadership. As a 100% volunteer organization, we are fortunate that our members step forward to share their time and talent. This year, several women are rolling off the board. We are grateful to Amy Bouque, Kathryn Bentley, Erica Peresman, Debora DiCicco, Heidi Smith, Brooke Kircher, Tricia Skapyak, Betira Shahollari, Cheryl Harewood, Jaclyn Jackson, Carly Campbell, and Nadeen Nabolsi for their many contributions.

To our other past board members, we hope you will accept this special invitation to our event so we can celebrate your contributions, too!


Looking for Leaders


As our new year begins, we are reaching out to YOU, our members, to invite you to take on a larger role in our organization. We have openings for several board members and many committee positions. We promise you won't find a better group of women to work with anywhere. In addition to helping to fuel transformation in a more up close and personal way, you will come away with lifelong friends, and have a lot of fun in the process.
