Hopeworks ‘N Camden Awarded First Impact100 South Jersey Grant
Impact100 South Jersey awarded its first grant to Hopeworks ‘N Camden at our Annual Meeting on June 26 at Tavistock Country Club. Hopeworks will receive $74,000 to further its mission of partnering with young men and women as they identify and earn a sustainable future for their communities.
During the Impact100 Annual Meeting, members heard from Hopeworks and CASA For Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties, which were the finalists from among the 23 organizations that began the grant review process in January. Following presentations from the finalists, the members voted in keeping with their one-member-one-vote model. Hopeworks ‘N Camden emerged as an organization that will receive the inaugural Impact100 South Jersey grant.
The annual meeting was the culmination of a year-long cycle that began with recruiting Impact100 members last fall. That was followed by a thorough, member-driven grant review process throughout the spring. Last fall’s recruitment efforts yielded 74 Charter Members who each contributed $1,000. The combine contributions of $74,000 will fund the Hopeworks grant.
