The power of women coming together to improve the quality of life in Baldwin County – that’s what Impact 100 Baldwin County is about. As you move through the county, you can see the result of this collective energy: You might notice the Library Cooperative Bookmobile delivering books to a home-bound veteran on CR 31, or you might hear a good music vibe emanating from a concert at the Halstead Pavilion in Fairhope. Likely, you won’t see the freezer in Prodisee Pantry’s facility in Spanish Fort, but you might notice the people picking up food supplies that have been kept fresh because of the equipment. The benefits to the community are everywhere, some less obvious than others: There are the children who are protected from further physical and sexual abuse by Care House in Summerdale, and the grandmother who can now read bedtime stories to her grandchild because of the tutoring rooms at the South Baldwin Literacy Council in Foley.
By embracing the power of collective giving, Impact 100 Baldwin County is able to harness the financial contributions of individual women into a force making a profound difference for local nonprofits and the people they serve. Our members are the lifeblood that fuels the organization. Their donations of money, time and talent make it possible for us to award high-impact grants to deserving nonprofits serving the community at large.
The grants we give are transforming and on a scale that is rarely available to area organizations. Annually, the grants are awarded to nonprofits working in Baldwin County in categories reflecting the range of needs in our community: Art, Culture & Recreation; Education; Environment & Preservation; Family; and Health & Wellness. The applications are rigorously vetted, and the recipients are enthusiastically voted on and selected by members.
Impact 100 is a force for good in Baldwin County. Join us as we make a difference every day in the lives of the people in our community.
