Nonprofit Community Impact Funding Review Day

Sourcewell will award tens of thousands of dollars to local nonprofit organizations through Community Impact Funding. However, Sourcewell doesn't select the projects, you do! Join us for Community Impact Funding Review Day and if you are affiliated with a 501c3 nonprofit in the region, you have a vote. Applicants will present their project and then participants will then have time to ask questions and rank projects for funding.
