Last night, Impact 100 president Karen Holly announced that Impact 100 will be awarding $117,000 to five local nonprofits this year. In June 2014, one grant of $100,000 and four residual/unrestricted grants of $4,250 will be awarded. Nonprofits’ LOIs are due tomorrow, January 17.
The announcement event was held at Tindley Collegiate, the recipient of Impact 100’s 2013 grant. Tindley Collegiate Academy is the first all-girls middle school in Indiana, serving a majority African American population in the Meadows, one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the city. With the grant, Tindley built a state-of-the-art STEM lab intended to provide middle-school girls with experiences that will inspire them toward careers in math and science.
