We received over 60 exceptionally high quality EOIs for our 2017 inaugural $100,000 grant. The applications were truly inspiring and the social needs often heart wrenching. Our grants team found it very challenging to decide on 8 semi-finalists from so many worthwhile and much needed projects.
Our hope is more people will be moved to join IMPACT100 Sydney North so we can award smaller grants in addition to the Primary Grant. Some of our members have separately given donations and volunteered for organisations they’ve met at our events or learnt about through the grants process. So we know the ripple effect is well underway.
We would like to recognise the contribution our applicants make to the sector and thank them for the wonderful work they do supporting young people at risk.
