It is always a pleasure to hear of the achievements of our charity partners, since receiving our support.
We know that our grantees benefit not only from increased income to support their vital work, but also from increased exposure to other funders as well as skills development, such as grant application writing or public speaking and presentation skills.
One of our two most recent winners of a $100,000 high impact grant in 2020, Cottages for Country Care SA, recently sent a lovely acknowledgement, which we wanted to share with you. Please click the link to read it on our Impact100 SA website.
It is Saturday night and what else does one do, if not socialising … work on charity stuff!
Two weeks ago, one of our valuable and wise volunteers observed when looking at another grant application, that as a group we were not ready for the detail it required before December 4th 2020. I accepted that at the time as a good call.
However, as one does, one reflects and thinks about a part of your 2020 video where you captured one saying something like “it was great to be able to put into writing what we have been aiming to achieve for years”.
So, here I am happily attempting that challenging grant application, with Impact100 SA’s support as the wind under my wings. It is great as I am learning valuable points along during the process.
Thank you for helping to lift the charity, Cottages 4 Country Care, to greater heights in more ways than one.
We were also thrilled to receive this update this week from Grandparents for Grandchildren SA:
Just had a call from (another grant organisation) advising our grant application has been successful! They also noted that you gave GFGSA a glowing reference, for which I am extremely grateful Kath – thank you so much!
Impact100 SA’s $100,000 grant has fairly and squarely stamped the GFGSA Village Program and its associated Mobile Outreach Service on the SA map. It allowed us to develop and grow these services. Now, this new grant will allow this much needed work to continue unabated.
Thanks again for everything.
