the grant year. 100% of member donations are pooled to create Impact Grants of $100,000

to be awarded to nonprofit organizations in Chicago. In the fall of each year, nonprofits

submit applications, which are vetted over the course of six months by member

committees to determine the finalists. At the Grant Awards Celebration, each member is

given one vote and the grants are awarded that night. 100% of donations go to the

nonprofits.
