The Power of One


Hospice of Western Kentucky was awarded the first ever IMPACT 100 Next Generation grant of $3,500 for the Children’s Grief and Healing Program. This grant will help provide teddy bears to children in the Hospice grief counseling program and expand their support services, including the initiation of their Storybook Series.

IMPACT 100 Owensboro Next Generation   

Next Generation is a new IMPACT 100 group for high school girls currently in the 12th grade (graduating in 2018) or who will be in grades 8-12 in the 2017-2018 school year.

The program is designed to:

  • Empower young women through mentoring with Impact 100 members.
  • Create a sense of community among the young women through engagement with local nonprofits.
  • Create a philanthropic spirit of giving back to the community with both time and money.

Come join high school youth in the Owensboro area as we embark on a new grant-making initiative created just for young women in our community!
