WOMEN’S COLLECTIVE GIVING GROUP INVITES LOCAL NONPROFITS TO APPLY
LAS VEGAS, NV –January 2013 -- Impact Las Vegas, a nonprofit women’s giving circle in its inaugural year, will award $13,000 to a Southern Nevada charitable organization in June 2014.
Impact Las Vegas consists of women who donate $1,000 each year by December 31st. 100% of these membership donations is pooled and given out as an annual grant to a Southern Nevada nonprofit organization in one of five focus areas: Culture, Education, Environment, Family, or Health & Wellness.
According to Founder & President Maureen Romito, the 2014 grant award of $13,000 represents the combined giving from 13 founding and charter members. In June 2014 these Impact Las Vegas members will each cast one vote to determine their first nonprofit grant recipient.
“In our collective giving model, “ she explained, “each woman’s individual membership donation is pooled so that we can make a bigger difference and have a more significant impact with our charitable giving than any of us could do alone.”
“Our ultimate goal,” she added, “is to have at least 100 women join as members by the end of 2014 so that our June 2015 grant amount would total $100,000. Achieving 100 members will mean we can fund projects that benefit our neighbors and community in a substantial way.”
Impact Las Vegas has a two-step grant application process, with a February 14, 2014 deadline for the Letter of Inquiry form submission. Interested 501(c)(3) organizations should visit the Grant page of the organization’s website to review the grant process guidelines and eligibility requirements.
