Congratulations to our 2022 Grant Recipients!
This year, we are proud to announce that collectively our members awarded $200,000 in grants to three South Jersey nonprofits at the group’s Annual Meeting held on June 15, 2022, at Maggiano’s Restaurant in Cherry Hill, NJ.
A $100,000 Core Mission grant was awarded to the Boys and Girls Club of Cumberland County in Vineland. The grant will be used to extend their current building (a former credit union), more than doubling its existing space and increasing the number of young people they serve.
Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge (Medford, NJ) and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance (Southampton, NJ) will receive $50k general operating grants.
“We are thrilled to be able to award these impactful grants throughout the South Jersey community. When we started five years ago with several women around a kitchen table, we never imagined getting to this point so fast. It is both humbling and exciting to say the least,” said Kyle Ruffin, President-elect, Impact100 South Jersey.
Impact100 South Jersey began in 2017 and has now awarded more than $826,000 to South Jersey nonprofits. It is one of more than 50 chapters worldwide that, combined, have awarded over $105 million in grants to nonprofits in their local communities since launching in 2008.
