Annually, at least one $100,000 grant will be awarded to a nonprofit in one of the following focus areas: Arts &Culture, Education, Environment, Family, and Health & Wellness. The grant recipient will be selected by a vote of the Impact 100 Richmond membership, after a detailed grant proposal review process.

We recommend you consider which focus area best represents the emphasis of your project.
