The members of IMPACT100 Greater Chesapeake, Inc. voted to award a $54,000 grant to Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County (RTACC). The award was made at the IMPACT100 annual member meeting October 18 which was held virtually. Finalists for the grant delivered brief presentations about their project proposals to IMPACT100’s membership. Previously the grant was awarded to Maryland Therapeutic Riding of Anne Arundel County in 2018 and the Anne Arundel County Food Bank in 2019.

Founded in 1991, Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County (RTACC) has repaired over 770 homes in Anne Arundel County. Low-income homeowners often have no place to turn when the roof begins to leak, the front steps crumble, or they find themselves unable to gain access to and from their home without the help of a ramp. Rebuilding Together’s mission is to be that place to turn; preserving and revitalizing houses and communities, assuring that low-income residents including elderly, veteran, single parent and disabled homeowners live in warmth, safety and independence. All services are provided at no cost to the homeowners.

The 2020 Grant is awarded to the Urgent and Critical Home Renovations Program of Rebuilding Together Anne Arundel County. This funding is making it possible for residents who are injured or disabled to leave the hospital or rehabilitation facility and return to their homes safely. This is the only free program available, and it makes it possible to assess and fit homes with the specialty modifications needed quickly. By providing infrastructure materials this grant will enable this important work to happen for years to come.

“This organization is a shining example of the power and impact people can have when they make a conscious decision to give back and try to make a difference in their community,” said Heather DeBuse, president of IMPACT100.  “I am proud to say that I was part of a group of women who were able to make such a substantial financial contribution to Rebuilding Together.”

Started in 2018 by women dedicated to improving the local community, IMPACT100 Greater Chesapeake joined Impact 100 groups all over the country in recruiting women to donate $1,000 each and pooling those resources into one grant for a qualifying nonprofit.

“As an organization, we are honored to have had so many worthwhile projects to choose from, and now we are looking to the 2021 grant cycle for even more opportunities to improve our community,” said DeBuse.  “We encourage women to consider joining IMPACT100 to increase our grant total, and we also encourage nonprofits to apply for our 2021 grant!”

IMPACT100 is now seeking members for the 2021 grant cycle.  Women interested in learning more about the organization and the benefits of membership are invited to visit the website at www.impact100greaterchesapeake.org or join the Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/greaterchesapeake.
