Across the country and across the globe women are taking their rightful place at the table where decisions are made. Nowhere is their presence more powerfully felt than in the arena of philanthropy, where women's values and visions are reshaping our world.


Impact 100 is a select group of one hundred women who have committed to giving $1,100 per year for the purpose of making a single transformative grant to a local nonprofit–one every year. These transformative grants will be game-changers for the recipient nonprofits. Over time, these nonprofits will be game-changers for our city, as well.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens WOMEN can change the world.”

—Margaret Mead


Because, as Margaret Mead said, it really only takes a small group of committed individuals to change the world. In recent years, as women have stepped into their power—including their earning power—women’s giving circles have become influential change agents in communities across the country. We believe it’s time for a women’s giving circle to transform some of the pressing issues facing New Orleans. By pooling our resources and focusing our efforts, we can be the change agents few of us can afford to be alone. Together, we can demonstrate the power of collaborative giving. $1,100 is your passport to Impact 100. Download the Impact 100 2017 Flyer or the Q&A to learn more.
