Impact100 Nashville Members Making a Difference 


                       2023 Membership Drive is Officially ON
             to Achieve our 2023 Grant Goal of $425,000 by May

Please renew your membership as soon as possible.  2023 membership closes on May 31.  We set an ambitious goal to reach or exceed 425 members awarding $425,000 this year, which means we need each member to renew and to bring in at least one new member.   If each of us pays our membership fee in 2023 and brings in one new member we will exceed our goal.  Let’s do it!

2023 membership closes on May 31 at which time we will learn how much grant money we can award. CLICK HERE TO RENEW OR JOIN

See the list below of upcoming events to which you can bring your guests to learn about and join Impact100 Nashville.


Thanks to members who participated in the membership survey.
Here are some interesting highlights:

Of those responding:

  • 50% consider themselves engaged philanthropists – they are committed to philanthropy, but also look to Impact100 to meet and interact with like-minded women.  27% consider themselves harried philanthropists who are busy, but willing to help where they can.  8% are silent philanthropists – members who are happy giving money but do not seek to network or actively participate

  • The majority of those responding are interested in events that enable them to network/mingle with other members, but do not look to Impact100 to provide programming or activities that they can participate in elsewhere.  The vast majority would like happy hours, lunches or coffee events.

  • 40% live in the city of Nashville; 40% live in southern suburbs such as Franklin, Green Hills, etc; and 20 % live in northeast suburbs like Gallatin, Hendersonville, Mt Juliet and Lebanon

  • 99% would like to have a list of Impact100 Members on the website

  • 88% would like to receive push-notification reminders and communications via text (active opt-in will be required)

  • 88% would like to receive reminders and notifications via text (active opt-in will be required)
