Impact100 Greater Milwaukee Donates $25,000 to United Way COVID-19 Relief Funds
In response to the dramatic community needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Impact100 Greater Milwaukee has donated $25,000 to United Way COVID-19 Relief Funds in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington Counties. The funds will be split proportionately based upon population size, with the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha receiving $22,000, United Way of Washington County receiving $2,000, and United Way of Northern Ozaukee receiving $1,000.
The Impact100 Board of Directors allocated these funds from its record membership recruitment, current year cost saving and strategic reserve, and the members voted to direct the funds to the United Ways’ COVID-19 Relief Funds. Impact100 will continue with its annual grants cycle, planning to award a record four – $100,000 Impact grants, although the timeline has been delayed due to the “Safer at Home” orders.
Said Nicole Angresano, Vice President of Community Impact, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, “We are so appreciative of Impact100’s generosity. Our community’s nonprofits currently face dramatic needs for emergency food, and cleaning, hygiene and medical supplies. These funds will help the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County remain responsive as the pandemic continues.”
Formed in 2015, Impact100 Greater Milwaukee is an organization of women leveraging their collective gifts to award $100,000 grants to nonprofit organizations to strengthen the Greater Milwaukee community. Over the past four years, Impact100 Greater Milwaukee has awarded $1,200,000 to twenty nonprofit organizations. While these COVID-19 donations represent a departure from the Impact100 grant making model, the organization wishes to be an active part of the community response to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
