By bringing together 100 women who each make a donation of $1,000, we are able to impact transformational change in our community.
Impact100 Metro Denver is about the power of collective decision-making and collective grant-making. As a grant-making organization, Impact100 Metro Denver brings together women in our community to do something truly remarkable: give a gift of $100,000 to a nonprofit organization in our local area that has a big idea and great potential, but may have little access to large-scale funds. By bringing together 100 or more women who each make an annual donation of $1,000, we are able to make a much greater impact on the future of our community vs. individual giving.
Our Mission: Our mission is to increase participation among women in local philanthropy, raise awareness of the unmet needs of nonprofits in Metro Denver, inspire members to become more involved with local charities, and make a substantial and lasting impact on the long-term sustainability of our nonprofit community.
Our partnership with The Denver Foundation is key to enabling our objectives. The Denver Foundation is the oldest & largest community foundation in the Rocky Mountain region. Established in 1925, The Denver Foundation ('TDF') connects donors with causes they care about - and helps them make an impact. The Denver foundation offers Impact100 Metro Denver everything from critical administrative support (ex. fund management services and tax-deduction forms) to greater community access (for increased membership and an outreach platform to future grantees) to even greater credibility, as TDF staff scrutinizes the operations of hundreds of local nonprofit organizations each year, and has a large reservoir of knowledge regarding virtually all aspects of the local nonprofit community. Impact100 Metro Denver is considered a "Giving Circle" of The Denver Foundation.

When longtime friends Pat Wynne and Cathy Murphy first heard about Impact100 from friends in Sonoma, California, they were impressed by the simplicity of the program, the strength of the process, and the excitement of being part of such a community! That was 2010. The Sonoma chapter has since thrived and made a big impact. This Sonoma chapter, their active members and the great impact they have made on their local community serve as a an inspiration and contributor to Pat and Cathy's conclusion, "We need to do this in Denver!"
