Impact100 Sonoma awards $324,00 in grants



At its 10th Annual Awards Celebration, Impact100 Sonoma gave a $100,000 Impact Grant to Sonoma Valley Community Health Center to fund its Sonoma Valley Vision Clinic. Pets Lifeline and Challenge Sonoma Adventures Ropes Course each received unrestricted grants of $10,000, and eight additional organizations received $154,000 in Community grants ranging in size from $14,500 to $20,000.

Challenge Sonoma Adventure Ropes Course, in collaboration with Sonoma Valley Youth and Family Services, received $14,500 to relocate from the now-closed Sonoma Developmental Center to Hanna Boys Center and rebuild the four low elements (under two feet high) of the Ropes Course, used primarily by younger, less experienced students.

In honor of the organization’s 10th Anniversary, Impact100 awarded a grant of $50,000 to Vintage House to expand their program offerings. Additionally, Impact100 awarded a total of $324,000 in grant money to nonprofits serving Sonoma Valley, including Art Escape, Ceres Community Project, Community Matters, Flowery Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization, Legal Aid of Sonoma County, Teen Services Sonoma, and North Coast Resource Conservation & Development Council.

Since the founding of Impact100 Sonoma in 2009 the organization has awarded $2,386,000 dollars to nonprofits serving Sonoma Valley, making it one of the community’s largest funders.

Impact100 Sonoma is a collective grant-making organization that brings together at least 100 women in a common purpose: to award an Impact Grant of $100,000 every year to a nonprofit organization serving Sonoma Valley. The organization’s mission is to empower women of Sonoma Valley to invest in a more sustainable nonprofit community through collective giving and responsible stewardship.
