Sponsors, individual or corporate, commit additional dollars or in-kind gifts in support of the operations of the Imapct100 organization. There are several levels of sponsorship, some of which include memberships for women in your organization. Click here to learn more about sponsorship options.

Although additional gifts are always welcome, each member is limited to one vote per person per year. But you can prepay your membership for subsequent years and/or sponsor others to join. There are also sponsorship options which include memberships. Click here to view the sponsorship options.

We welcome “Sponsors and Friends of Impact100” and are thrilled when an individual, foundation, or corporation wants to help us through monetary or in-kind service donations.
