In addition to our Finance Committee who thoroughly vets each grant applicant organization, the five grant review committees consist of members that are responsible for review of grant applications and conduct site visits with applicants. Each committee then provides recommendations of finalists to the Board of Directors who in turn approves the ten finalists. At the November 2018 annual meeting, IMPACT 100 NWF members will vote to determine one winner from each focus area, totaling five grant winners who will each receive a grant award of $102,800.
