OUR GRANT STRATEGY
Impact100 Sydney North aims to make one Primary Grant of $100,000 each year. We look for projects that meet a compelling need, demonstrate high impact and a make measurable difference. Our current grants focus is ‘young people at risk’ encompassing broad and complex issues such as youth suicide, mental health, disability, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and domestic violence.
Firstly, the grant recipients and the people or issue they support, which we hope will have a ripple effect on the sector and community.
Also you as a member donor. Being part of giving away $100,000 is extremely satisfying and rewarding, and you’ll know your gift will be improving the lives of others.
SELECTING THE GRANT RECIPIENT
Each year, we send out a call for initial Expressions of Interest (EOI) Grant Applications. A grant review team made up of our members accepts and evaluates these grant applications, shortlisting 8 to submit full applications. These are then evaluated by researching and visiting applicants in order to arrive at 4 finalists. We deliver information on those finalists to each Impact100 Sydney North member for review. At the annual Grants Celebration event the finalists give a short presentation, after which a collective decision on the winning recipient is made.
WHAT ABOUT THE 3 THAT DON’T WIN?
Ideally all four grant recipients who make the shortlist will receive some financial assistance. Only one will receive the $100,000 Primary Grant, but we hope the other three will receive some funds in recognition of the time and effort spent participating in our grants process. All four grant recipients will benefit from raised public profiles, potentially attracting additional funding. Any organisation unsuccessful in their application for an Impact100 Sydney North grant may find new avenues of funding as a result of undergoing the review and selection process. Any media coverage will also take these organisations to a wider audience.
