Impact100 Essex is now accepting applications for its new Equity Grants. The organization is funding three $15,000 unrestricted grants available to nonprofit organizations led by Black, Indigenous and other people of color in Essex County.

“These grants are a response to the call for action for greater equity in the field of grant
making, as studies are pointing to the fact that BIPOC-led nonprofits have been
historically excluded from funding,” Mayuri Chandra, Impact100 Essex member
and co-chair of its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee, said.

Interested nonprofits should visit the Impact100 Essex website for eligibility criteria and the link to the application form. Applications are due Dec. 5 and funding decisions will be made in January 2022. The Equity Grants are in addition to the organization’s 2021 $100,000 Impact Grant and nonprofits may apply to both grants.

Impact100 Essex is a collective philanthropic group founded and funded by women in
Essex County.
