How it Works
Impact Central Illinois combines annual donations from members and gives large grants each year to a local worthy causes selected by our members. The only membership requirements are to be female and to donate $1100 each year of membership. There is no time committment with Impact Central Illinois. Members have the option to serve on one of the committees that evaluates grant applicants, however, it is not a requirement. Membership donation is due before the end of the year.
Volunteer Your Talents
We are looking for members to serve on our committees - mainly our Grant Review Committee. Every year, we engage in an intricate process to ultimately select grant recipients. Our committee members review all grant applications, perform site visits, and see how our dollars will make a difference. The committees will then narrow it down to our finalists. At our annual meeting in June, all members will vote on which organizations we think will have the most positive impact on the lives of people throughout the Central Illinois area.
Sponsor a Member
We would like to offer sponsorships to women who might be unable to join us otherwise. It is our hope that they would offer strengths and perspectives to our mission while providing them an opportunity to experience the power of collective giving.
