WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Impact 100 Wichita Falls announced Thursday its 2022 grant amount.

$114,000 will be awarded to a nonprofit organization in the greater Wichita Falls area in August. The announcement came during the organization’s Big Reveal event, where members learned the total number of women who joined the organization or renewed their membership.

The purpose of Impact 100 is to empower women of all ages and backgrounds by bringing them together to make a transformational impact through philanthropic investment. Each member has committed $1,000 to the grant.

“The power of women giving as one through high-impact grants allows us to have a profound influence on improving the quality of life in our service area,” said Paula Perkins, president of Impact 100 Wichita Falls. “Pooling our donations and strategically making decisions together, we are able to return 100% of donations to effect sustainable social change.”

In their inaugural year in 2020, the women of Impact 100 voted to award the $59,000 grant to The Arc of Wichita County. In 2021, Impact 100′s membership grew to 81 women, and they voted to award the $81,000 grant to First Step, Inc.

Charitable 501(c)(3) organizations interested in applying for the 2022 Impact 100 grant will have until Friday, Feb. 25 to complete the online application. More information can be found here.
