Who We Are

We are women from all walks of life who have come together to make a collective and significant difference in our community. Impact100 Owensboro exists to empower women to award large grants that transform lives.

May/June 2022 Newsletter

From the President: Last month I had the pleasure to celebrate with our members by announcing the results of our membership drive and the total dollars collected to be awarded later this year. It’s been three years since we’ve had a BIG REVEAL live and in person and our ladies were ready to be together! We thrive on collaborating and feeding off the energy of our peers. And if you enjoy that, I encourage you to sign up and participate in a focus group this summer.

New members: mark your calendar for our New Member Reception on May 24 and be on the lookout for your invitation in the mail. We look forward to meeting you and sharing some valuable information with you at the event.

The Impact100 Owensboro online grant application is now open. We are so excited to read about the amazing programs and ideas from our area nonprofits. We encourage you to dream big and think outside the box. This is your time to shine! Applications for all grants are due by 5 p.m. on June 3.

March/April 2022 Newsletter

“In like a lion, out like a lamb” often describes the month of March. For Impact100 Owensboro though, March is the culmination of our membership drive and by the end of the month, you are going to hear us ROAR!

Did you know that March is also National Women’s History Month? It may be coincidence, but our Impact100 membership drive ends in March each year and our chapter has made some significant history over the last 16 years!
Our chapter was the first one developed in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our chapter co-founder, Martha F. Clark, will soon be the first woman inaugurated into the Owensboro Business Hall of Fame. And our high school chapter of NEXTGEN is just the second of its kind in the country! In 2021, we made history again with the highest number of members (287) AND the greatest total of dollars raised and awarded in one cycle ($259,500)!

Women have the power to transform their communities through collective giving. That’s where we come in.
