Serve on a Grant Review Committee

Serving on a Grant Review Committee (GRC)  is one of the most impactful ways to participate in Impact100 Sonoma, learn about the nonprofit organizations and needs of our community and experience the grant review process.  Due to COVID-19, all events for the 2021 grants season will be virtual.
What do Impact100 Sonoma Grant Review Committees do?

Grant Review Committees are established annually for the winter/spring grant review season. Committee members read and review grant applications and participate in a thorough vetting process that leads to recommending finalists to be voted on by the entire membership.

What will the 2021 Impact100 grant review process look like?

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Impact100 Sonoma has implemented a temporary grants process for 2021. Click here for details on our 2021 Impetus Grants. Click here for information on our 2021 Impetus Grants Applications Process.

Is there a calendar for the grant review committees? How much time does it take?

To address the urgent needs of our nonprofit community, our grant review season will take place on a shortened timeline this year, from January – March 2021. Most if not all of the meetings will be virtual, and committee members will be expected to devote approximately 15-18 hours of their time to the process. The 2021 Grant Review Committee Calendar is on the right-hand side of this page.
