Organizations can apply in one of five categories, namely arts and culture; children and families; education; environment; recreation and preservation; and health and welfare.

To help non profits better understand the process, the grants committee has scheduled four information sessions in February.

The one at the Bridgewater Township Library will be Feb. 26 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The other sessions will be noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Morris County Library, in Whippany; Feb. 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Wayne Public Library; and Feb. 27 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Project Self-Sufficiency, in Newton.

All sessions are free of charge, and more information can be found at www.impact100gardenstate.org. Register by sending an email to grants@impact100gardenstate.org.

In addition, according to the release, the organization's grants are based on the number of members who join by March 31, and each member contributes $1,000 with all money going directly to fund the grants.

Prospective member gatherings are held at local venues, and, on Feb. 21, there will be an "I Love Impact" party at the Starlight Room, in Morristown. All those interested in joining are welcome.
