January/February 2022 Newsletter
Happy New Year and welcome to year 17 of Impact100 Owensboro! A new year is always exciting to have a fresh slate, make new goals and reflect on the goodness of the year gone by.
2021 was historic for our organization as we raised and awarded the largest amount ever, and had the greatest number of ladies participating in our giving circle. It still gives me chills to think about the resilience of our community after the first year of the pandemic. The nonprofits needed us more than ever and we showed up with 287 members and gave away $259,500 to four organizations. And if that wasn’t enough, at least two of our members privately funded two additional finalists’ grant proposals. Amazing! This is the ripple effect of Impact100 in action.
November/December 2021 Newsletter
November and December are months of great change, excitement and celebrations, including so many holidays for our faith communities, as well as family get-togethers where we enjoy our cherished rituals. We say goodbye to this year and welcome a new one with hope and anticipation.
September/October 2021 Newsletter
September and October are months filled with lifelong memories … buying school supplies, clothes and new shoes, getting back into a routine after the carefree days of summer, and lots of fall sports practices. School children are excited and nervous about meeting new teachers and changing classes, and parents are also feeling conflicting emotions as children change schools or move off to college. The skies are bluer, the air is crisper, temperatures are more moderate, and the trees are beginning their changes to vibrant yellow, crimson and amber. There is a feeling of excitement in the air of new beginnings, fresh starts.
