What is Impact 100 Jersey Coast?

Impact 100 Jersey Coast is a non-profit organization established in the Monmouth County area to provide transformational funds to organizations that reach under-served populations; to raise the profile of those that are deserving but lesser-known; and to highlight unmet needs in the areas of Arts and Culture, Children and Families, Education, Health & Wellness, and Sustainability & Environment.

Our 2021 grants cycle is well underway – thank you to all the nonprofit organizations that applied. All organizations have been notified of their status. Semi-finalists will receive site visits from our FACs before a final decision is made on the 2021 finalists in October. Stay tuned!

Four grants of $107,500 will be awarded in November 2021
