Announcing our 2020 nominees!

More than 100 members and guests gathered at the JamFactory last night for the official launch of the Impact100 SA 2020 high impact grant!

Following a slight change of approach, we were thrilled to announce thirty South Australian grass roots charities and organisations which will be invited to submit an expression of interest for a 2020 high impact grant.

Our thirty charities have been hand picked by our members, and a high impact grant could support their delivery of on-the-ground programs for communities across arts, disability, health, youth, environment, animal welfare, education, domestic violence and women’s services.

What’s new

Having been successfully running for five years, we have implemented some changes to our application process to ensure that your donation is reaching communities through grass roots initiatives.

Previously we have opened applications based on themes but this we asked our members to nominate South Australian based charities that they felt would benefit from an Impact100 SA grant.

All nominations were collated and underwent a high-level preliminary assessment to ensure organisations met eligibility criteria set by the Impact100 SA Management Committee.
