    Impact 100 Crawford County is looking for a few charitable women—100 to be exact.
    Impact 100 is a women’s giving group, working to show the power of women is a formidable force and operating under the motto, “May we know them. May we be them.”


    Women interested in “knowing them and being them” are invited to join this women’s giving circle. Impact 100 Crawford County is a group of Crawford County women united in a common cause to provide high impact grants to exceptional not-for-profit organizations serving Crawford County. The goal is to become 100 members strong. 
     Since the organization began in 2017, Impact 100 Crawford County has given back $89,000 in grants to local nonprofits. There are many organizations doing important work and improving the lives of individuals and communities throughout our county. Impact 100 Crawford County is supporting this work and allowing organizations to “dream big” as they continue to make our county a great place to live. The five areas of focus for the grants are: (1) Art, Culture, Tourism; (2) Parks, Recreation, Community Betterment; (3) Education; (4) Health and Wellness; and (5) Families.  
    There are three ways to become a member of this giving group. You can write a check for $500 to Impact 100 Crawford County; you and a partner can each write checks for $250; or you can have a company sponsor you and the company writes the $500 check and receives the charitable tax letter.
    Men (and women) can also be friends of the organization—that money goes toward the expense of the annual event, which they are invited to attend.
    The 4th Annual Event for Impact 100 Crawford County is scheduled for Thursday, September 17. 
    Those who wish to become a member or friend should mail checks to Impact 100, P.O. Box 61, Cuba, MO 65453.
