Impact 100 Palm Beach County is a group of philanthropic women who each annually contribute $1,000 to donate to local nonprofits.

These individual contributions are then pooled into $100,000 grants that are used to fund high-impact initiatives in our southern Palm Beach County area.

By working together, these philanthropic women seek to transform not only the organizations that apply for these grants, but also lives of those benefiting from their work.
