MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ: At a time when almost every charitable organization is desperate for funding, four lucky organizations have been awarded the much coveted Impact 100 annual recipient award. At the Impact Jersey Coast Annual Meeting, sponsored by The Center for Women and Wealth at Brown Brothers Harriman, New Jersey Natural Gas, Grunin Foundation, Stillwell-Hansen, and Bayshore Recycling, Impact 100 members gathered virtually for their opportunity to vote on the recipients of this year’s transformative grants.
Due to a record-breaking total of 456 Impact 100 members who each contributed $1,000 towards the 2020 grant fund, four inspiring and high-impact projects were awarded $114,000 each. The grant recipients include:
