Grant Testimonials

Equine-Assisted Therapies of South Florida
Economically challenged families with special needs face many hurdles. "Families with special needs children have almost twice the divorce rate. Equine therapy has demonstrated the ability to not only improve the life of the special needs child, but also to reduce stress and pressures of the entire family."

"The support of the women at Impact 100 helped elevate our mission and how we are seen in the community expressed Molly Murphy, Executive Director, gratefully." Impact 100’s grant helped Equine-Assisted Therapies of South Florida obtain funding from other sources after the grant ended.

Libby Moon, YMCA’s Drowning Prevention Coordinator and Co-Chair of Watersmart, highlights what makes Watersmart so special. "It is unique because it is all completely free to the students. The entire program is grant-based. Our goal is to keep the funding coming in to be able to provide as many swim lessons as possible – hopefully at least 1,000 lessons each summer, and we are trying to grow that number."

Tri-County Animal Rescue
"The Impact 100 PBC grant allowed us to do many surgeries. This avoided pet owners from having to either surrender their pets or put them down because it is very expensive to go to a vet especially in an emergency situation." Suzi Goldsmith, Founder and Executive Director of Tri-County Animal Rescue.

Boys & Girls Club of PBC: Project FACT
Project FACT (Fathers and Children Together) seeks to empower and mobilize fathers and father figures to become more engaged in their children’s lives.

Palm Beach Dramaworks
"We are committed to our motto to provide performances to young people to make them think. The play teaches kids about the dangers of social media and helps them think more critically." Gary Cadwallader, Director of Education Palm Beach Dramaworks.

Several Impact 100 PBC founders attended a dress rehearsal of the play. The danger is so different than obvious stranger danger from years ago. Social media makes it so much more frightening, Lisa Mulhall added. Lisa Mulhall is one of the Impact 100 PBC’s founders who attended, along with Tandy Robinson and Cindy Krebsbach.

Place of Hope
"We work hard to try to break the cycles of abuse and neglect-things that can lead people in the direction of poverty, human trafficking, and homelessness. Healthy, personal responsibility is our focus." Charles Bender, Founding CEO and Board Member

It was perfect timing when Impact 100 PBC’s $100,000 grant was awarded to Place of Hope. It was the exact amount they needed to raise to complete the project.

Bound for College
"If Impact 100 didn’t put us in Atlantic Community High School, we would never have grown to help more students. The grant helped us scale up." Mark Sauer, Founder, Bound for College.

Bound for College saw meaningful results in the lives of specific students as a result of Impact’s grant.
