Our Impact Goes Way Beyond Awarding Grants
The message below was sent to Impact100 South Jersey Grant Chair Kim Moon the day after our Annual Meeting. It was from Mike O’Malley, Executive Director of Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge — one of our 2021 $50,000 general operating grant recipients.
Thank you for reaching out. We are absolutely celebrating! Receiving any grant is fantastic, but it really means so much more to us knowing that this support is coming from 200 amazing local women. It is really an honor for us to have the confidence and support from all of you.
We will most definitely be considering a 2022 proposal. We now feel like a part of the SJ Impact100 family and plan to stay involved.
I called [Family Promise CEO] Rosemarie this morning and left her a voicemail to congratulate her on being this year’s winner. We are going to offer some free memberships to the families that she is serving, so they can visit Cedar Run and connect with nature without paying admission.
We are really proud to be a part of this network.
Thanks for all that you do.
