ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS YOU CAN GIVE IS YOUR TIME
How Can I Get Involved?
As a member of Impact100 SRQ, you are encouraged to Design Your Own Experience. Sharing the gift of your time, talent and experience is priceless. Members who volunteer in some capacity, have the opportunity to enrich their experience while gaining a deeper understanding of the importance of our mission in the community.
Share our Story
Educating others about Impact100 SRQ and our mission is a year-round task, and our most effective membership recruiting tool is the enthusiasm shown by our members.
- Talk to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, family members, or any woman you know about Impact100 SRQ and the work we do.
- Invite a guest to join you at a Membership Engagement/Recruitment Event (Meet & Mingle)
- Bring a guest to our Annual Celebration and our Big Reveal. These signature events are filled with excitement for our mission and are the very best way to share the passion of who we are and what we do.
Join a Focus Area Committee
Participating on a Focus Area Committee (FAC) is at the heart of our mission and what sets Impact100 SRQ apart from other philanthropic organizations. This is one of the best ways to get involved.
All members are invited to join one of our Focus Area Committees (FACs) which review and evaluate grant applications submitted to Impact100 SRQ. Every year we create one committee for each of our five focus areas:
Arts, Culture & History
Environment and Recreation
Health & Wellness
Serving on a FAC is one of the most meaningful ways to participate in Impact100 SRQ. You will learn about the many needs in our community and about our grants review process. FACs meet during the Grants Phase (typically mid-June through mid-September) and perform in-depth reviews of grant applications, conduct site visits and narrow down finalists for the entire membership vote at our Annual Celebration in November. You can choose a FAC based on your interest and passion, or by the convenience what fits in your schedule for meetings.
Become An Ambassador
The Ambassador program was created to assist new members with connecting in a meaningful way with other members, and with Impact100 SRQ. We want each new member who joins us to feel welcome, validated and empowered as we help them design their own experience, and embrace the Impact100 SRQ mission.
As a returning member, you can volunteer to become an Ambassador and share your passion for our organization by helping to onboard women who are new to joining Impact100 SRQ.
Contact Impact100 Ambassadors for more information.
