America’s IMPACT 100 Results: America’s IMPACT 100 Results Who Are We?: Who Are We? We are ordinary women striving to make an extraordinary and lasting impact in our communities. There are seven chapters: Cincinnati, Austin, Pensacola, Indianapolis, Oklahoma, Owensboro, and St. Louis (newly formed). We give $100,000+ annually to local nonprofits that focus on one of five areas: culture, education, environment, family, and health and wellness. Each chapter consists of 100+ women who annually donate $1,000 and each has a vote to select charities for the large grants. Who Are We?: Who Are We? As individuals, we may not ever have the opportunity to gift on such a large scale, but collectively, we, as women, are able to make significant grants to help our community. By pooling our resources to create one large gift, you know the power we can have to ensure lives will change. We also want to teach the next generation of women, particularly our daughters, the art and importance of giving. One hundred percent of our members’ donations are returned to the community in the form of large grants.
