HANOVER — Impact100 Garden State, an all-women group for collective giving, awarded four organizations grants of $100,000 each when members voted at the group’s annual awards meeting on Wednesday, June 5, at the Birchwood Manor in Hanover Township.

The grants were awarded based on a vote by Impact100 Garden State members.

The recipients are:

Cheshire Home, a provider of short-term rehabilitation for adults with spinal injuries and neurological impairments, for its program “Helping Paralyzed Young Adults Rise&Walk Again.”

Comfort Zone Camp for its program “Free New Jersey Bereavement Camp Where Children Learn to Grieve, Heal and Grow.”

The Institute of Music for Children for its program “Arts Access for High-Need Children.”

The three remaining finalists each received a $3,000 Merit Grant. They are:

Housing Partnership for Morris County

Passaic County Community College Foundation

The all-women, all-volunteer Impact100 Garden State organization pools member contributions to make high-impact grants. Since it began grant-giving in 2013, the group has donated more than $3.5 million to area nonprofits. This year, a record membership of 408 women allowed Impact100 Garden State to give four $100,000 grants for the first time.

“Our collective giving circle empowers each member to give to others in a meaningful way, creating a strong team of female philanthropists,” says Impact100 Garden State President Celeste Campos of Warren. “We work together collaboratively, and in doing so, we have created a true community of women. All women are welcome to join us!”
