IMPACT100 Sydney North is a community of people seeking to transform lives in Sydney by awarding high impact grants. They believe by pooling their financial and intellectual resources they can have a ripple effect in their community. The world gets better, the giver has a bigger life, more people are inspired to give and the cycle grows.
A SIMPLE MODEL THAT WORKS
The IMPACT100 idea is simple: 100+ members who each donate $1,000 annually. The donations are combined to make high impact grants to local charities to help fund transformative projects. All donations are fully tax-deductible* and the entire $1,000 donation goes directly towards the grants. While the model is relatively new in Australia, they are part of the IMPACT100 movement now active in over 60 communities worldwide.
MAKING GIFTS WITH IMPACT
Each year members choose which projects to fund from a well-researched shortlist. They look for projects that meet a compelling need, demonstrate high impact and make a measurable difference. Although only one project receives the $100,000 Primary Grant, all the finalists benefit from raised public profiles, potentially attracting additional funding. Their grant focus is ‘children and/or and young people and/or families at risk’ encompassing broad and complex issues such as youth suicide, mental health, disability, drug and alcohol abuse, poverty, homelessness, family and domestic violence.
BE PART OF A GIVING COMMUNITY
Being part of giving away $100,000 is extremely satisfying and rewarding. Choose how involved you want to be: from becoming a member, to attending talks and events, participating in the review of applications and attending site visits, or joining our operational team. Meet like-minded people, learn more about philanthropy and be closely connected to the non-profits your donation is supporting. If your time is limited, your generous donation is more than enough.
