Membership FAQs

Perpetual Impact is an opportunity to become an important and exclusive part of Impact100 Greater Sacramento by pledging to renew your membership annually. Becoming an Impact100 Greater Sacramento member has already shown your belief in the power of women’s collective giving. You can take this commitment one step further by becoming a Perpetual Impact (PI) member. By pledging to become a PI member, you are agreeing to renew your membership each year continuously. By knowing the number of returning members we can count on each year, we can focus on inviting new members and keep our grant pool growing year after year.

Declaring your commitment to be a PI member is easy. Just check the Perpetual Impact box on your Impact application and pay your membership by February 28th each year. If you have already joined and you want to become part of PI, email us at info@impact100greatersacramento.org. If your circumstances change and you can’t continue to renew in future years, just let us know. Your pledge is not a legal obligation but a statement of your commitment to Impact100 Greater Sacramento.

To join, or for more information about joining, visit the Membership page. You may pay by credit card, check or Zelle. Please email us if you would like to pay by Zelle. You may pay all at once or via monthly installments. Your membership is good for one year through December of that year.

Impact100 is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Depending on your tax status, contributions are tax-deductible for the year for which they were made. You will receive a statement of contribution from Impact100 Greater Sacramento with the amount of your donation. Please consult your tax advisor.

Although additional gifts are always welcome, each member is limited to one vote per person per year. You can prepay your membership for subsequent years and/or sponsor others to join.

Yes, you can double your impact. We gratefully accept employer matching gifts. Donations matching your membership contribution play an important role, as they are applied toward program and operating costs. Please submit a matching request for your donation to your or your spouse’s employer. Some employers will also provide matching donations for retirees.

We welcome “Sponsors and Friends of Impact100” and are thrilled when an individual, foundation, or corporation wants to help us through monetary or in-kind service donations. Although they do not provide voting rights, these donations help cover program and operating expenses that are essential to accomplishing our mission.
