Making a difference in baldwin County

Important Letter from Impact 100 Board President

Posted on: March 17th, 2020

Dearest Impact 100 Members,

Impact 100 Baldwin County cares about the health and safety of our members, nonprofits, and the community as a whole. We are all in this together. 

We want to assure you that we are closely following the COVID-19 recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the White House. While moving forward to fulfill our mission, our Executive Committee is taking the following actions. 

  • We have cancelled our Grant Workshop scheduled for March 17 and rescheduled it as a virtual workshop on April 28.  All nonprofits and members will be updated on the time and how to join the training.  
  • We are extending our membership drive through April 10 and we are waiving the $30 card processing fee beginning today.  For the safety of those processing our memberships, we encourage you to renew online.
  • We are cancelling all “in person” March events: socials, Just For Fun gatherings, and committee meetings.  Committee chairs may contact their members for virtual/conference call meetings instead. Our April 9 Board of Directors meeting will be held virtually. 
  • On April 27, we will celebrate our grant numbers at the Big Reveal—either in person or virtually. We will keep you posted. 

We will continue to keep everyone updated as this unprecedented situation evolves.  We are moving forward with our grant process and will continue to engage, train, and support our grantees and grant applicants. 

The women of Impact 100 Baldwin County are resilient, courageous, and intelligent. Because of this, our organization will continue to thrive as we protect our families and our community. Know that you truly matter. What you do for others enriches everyone and makes Baldwin County a better place to live. Especially in times like these, you can be the change our community needs.  

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your continued support and understanding. 

You are in our prayers. Be safe, and be sure to practice solid hygiene.  

Truly,

Suzanne S. Thornburg, President, Impact 100 Baldwin County and your Impact 100 Board of Directors
