Women of Impact Boone County is a philanthropic women’s group, coordinated by the Community Foundation of Boone County (CFBC). This group is designed to provide financial support for local nonprofit organizations while creating a sense of community.
Members commit to donating $100 annually to the Women’s Fund endowment at the Community Foundation of Boone County and additional quarterly donations, based on membership type, to support the four nonprofits selected by the members throughout the year.
Our next meeting is NOVEMBER 29 at GOLF CLUB OF INDIANA.
In the fourth quarter, Women of Impact will partner with the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Boone County to provide a larger grant to the chosen organization. The nominations accepted at the fourth quarter meeting are limited to organizations solely serving women’s and/or children’s needs. The meeting format of three nominations drawn and member voting to determine winner will remain; HOWEVER, NOMINATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED IN ADVANCE OF THE MEETING IN ORDER TO BE VETTED BY CFBC STAFF.
Why Become a Member?
LOCAL IS IMPORTANT
You want 100% of your donations to go to a local charity in your community.
TOGETHER WE ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS
You want to be part of a powerful group that makes a lasting, positive and direct impact on Boone County.
You enjoy meeting other women who care about the local community and causes that make a difference here.
2017 meetings will be held on March 1, May 24, August 30 and November 29. We will begin the evening with a social time at 5:30 p.m. Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 7:00 p.m.
Every member has the option of nominating a nonprofit organization for the opportunity to win the group’s support. When an organization is selected, the speaker has 5 minutes to present to the group why this charity deserves the group’s support. Three charities will be randomly selected at each meeting.
Members will vote for one of the three charities that were presented. The charity with the most votes is selected as that evening’s grant recipient.
Members make a quarterly donation, based on their membership type, to CFBC, which will award one large grant to the winning organization. You may also choose to make your entire donation at one time rather than each quarter.
Observe the IMPACT
A check presentation will be scheduled roughly 2-3 weeks after the meeting. All members are encouraged to attend and hear directly from the selected organization how the donation will be utilized to better Boone County.
