Thank you to all of the members and guests who braved the winter storm to mix and mingle. Jenna Spurrier, Founding Member of Impact 100 of Greater Indianapolis, shared her story of meeting women at a friend’s home to discuss the idea of a Giving Circle to benefit the Indianapolis Community back in 2003. Jenna is very passionate about Impact 100 and the more than 50 non-profits we have assisted over the past 15 years. She explained that Impact 100 ensures your membership contribution of $1000 directly funds the grant pool, which is very different from many other organizations. We keep administrative costs to a minimum, and our organization is completely run by volunteers. The best way to keep our membership strong and growing is to talk about Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis with women you meet daily and with women you may have known for years.
Share, Share, Share your passion for Impact 100, and the great work we continue to do since 2005!
An Added Surprise –
Also during this event, Impact 100 was fortunate to introduce Darryl Lockett, the new Executive Director for the Kennedy King Memorial Initiative (KKMI), a residual winner in 2018 and Change-Maker winner last June. Darryl is originally from Indianapolis and is happy to have returned after 20 years to raise his family. He was very appreciative of the role Impact 100 has played in the community, as well as with the KKMI. We cannot wait to hear more about Darryl’s mission! Watch our website for more information on the upcoming event in April that will be located at the KKMI.
