100 people x $1000 each = $100,000. Every member has 1 vote – whether you give $1000 or $10,000. Our aim is $100,000 every year, growing our giving community. Your contribution can be as one gift, or as regular payments throughout the year. It can even be a syndicate or pool of your friends.
All donations are pooled to make one large grant to a Melbourne organisation working to support our focus area. Impact100Melbourne invites grant applications from nonprofit organisations who meet the fund’s criteria. These applications are shortlisted down to four, who are presented to our Members at an annual Grant Awards event. Members then vote to choose each year’s grant recipient. The Board of the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation makes the final decision.
Donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible as Impact100Melbourne has established a named sub-fund of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
Please choose Impact100 Melbourne in the “campaign” pull down menus when you make a donation through the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund’s website. Please also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure we have everyone’s details.
Impact100 Melbourne is a community of people hoping to change lives in Melbourne by awarding high-impact grants to charitable organisations.
We believe that pooling our financial and intellectual resources creates a ripple effect in our community. We take small steps to improve the world.
The Impact100 concept is simple.
100 Members x $1000 each have 1 vote to decide where to give $100,000.
