Dear Impact Giving Partners, Supporters and Friends,
It’s been a little over a month since our 2019 Impact Giving awards event, and I am still beaming with pride thinking of the impact we will have on such a diverse and broad range of organizations! I’m so pleased that our second Increasing the Impact auction raised over $40,000 in addition to the $130,400 we gave in grants. In case you missed it, you can see a list of the 2019 recipients here. I’m so delighted that each of these organizations will be better off because of the generosity of Impact Giving’s partners and supporters.
I was also recently able to read the 2018 grant recipients’ year-end reports, and was blown away by the work they were able to accomplish thanks to the power of collective giving. From giving young girls transportation to and from school, building a safe place for unaccompanied homeless women, to providing food and clean water to those who need it most – our partners grant funds truly did make an impact in our community and beyond. You can read our recipients’ year-end updates here.
As we head into the second half of summer, I hope you will join us for some of the events we have planned for our Partners and friends – because as you know, we believe it’s more fun to do things together than separately! Our 3rd annual summer mixer is coming up on July 28 at board member Judy Anderson’s Laguna Beach home and I’m looking forward to seeing old and new friends. We always include our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities in our monthly newsletter, or you can go to our website and click on “Events.”
And finally, if you aren’t connected with us on social media, we hope you’ll join the conversation! We love to post updates and news about Impact Giving non-profit organizations on our Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram pages.
Enjoy your summer, and look forward to seeing you soon.
Impact Giving Board Chair
