APPLY FOR GRANTS
We combine members' contributions and award high-impact
grants to local, worthy causes selected by our members.
Types of Grants
Impact 100 Wichita Falls grant awards are meant to be transformational, enabling an organization to pursue an endeavor that might otherwise not be possible. An appropriate funding request could be for services performed in a new way (innovation), more services of the same kind provided more often to the current population (deepening), or expanding current services to a new population (expansion). These types of grants might include additional staff and the accompanying operational costs. However, a sustainability plan should be a part of the grant proposal to demonstrate the continuance of such a program after grant funding is expended.
Specifically, Impact 100 Wichita Falls will grant:
Seed Money or Start-up Grants - Ideally, this type of grant would fund a new effort that aligns with the mission of the organization, with a sustainability plan in place after the start-up period.
Program Grants - The ideal program grant for Impact 100 Wichita Falls to consider will contain an element of innovation, deepening or expansion (see above).
Facility or Equipment Grants - Also referred to as capital or bricks-and-mortar grants, these grants help an organization purchase a physical asset that supports its mission and programs in a new or innovative way.
We do not fund:
General operating expenses or overhead
Debt reduction or operational deficits
Grants to individuals
Interim or bridge funding
Partisan, legislative or political activity
To be eligible for a grant, an organization must be a 501(c)(3) IRS-designated nonprofit.
Nonprofit organizations located in Wichita, Archer, Clay and Wilbarger counties in Texas are eligible for a grant award. The grant funds must be expended in one or more of these same counties.
