Impact100 Owensboro is a community of women that seeks to transform lives in the Greater Owensboro area through high-impact and lifelong giving, and is celebrating its 17th year providing grants to local nonprofit organizations.  

This year marks Impact100’s largest membership to date with 288 members and second-largest dollar amount to be awarded. NextGen is awarding a grant for the sixth year.

“We are so grateful to our members for seeing the value in the work done by nonprofits in our community,” said Beth Clements, grants committee co-chair and Impact 100 Owensboro president-elect. “We have so many amazing organizations in Owensboro that strive to make our community a great place to live. These nonprofits offer such a broad range of services to meet almost any need. It is our privilege to be able to work alongside them and aid them in their mission.”

Awards will be decided on October 27 when Impact100’s members will come together in person at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum for the organization’s annual meeting. Each finalist will offer a 7-minute presentation about their organization and related project. 

“This list of finalists was curated by our focus groups and represents the diversity of our membership and our community,” said Jodi Krahwinkel, President of Impact 100 Owensboro. “We have nonprofits that are both large and small; some are legends while others are in their infancy; and some are unique to Owensboro while others are affiliated with global organizations. Nothing pleases me more than to know that each of these agencies has the opportunity to be transformed with an Impact100 grant.”
