Are you a nonprofit interested in applying for a grant?

Our grant focus areas include Health & Wellness, Arts & Culture, Environmental, Family, and Education.

Our concept is simple:

  • Be in possession of just-prepared external financial reviews for submission if the revenues of the nonprofit are less than $525k for the most recent prior year; if revenue is over $525K, audited statements are required for submission

  • Maintain operating budget at $250,000

Note: More than one organization may collaborate with others on a project, but each organization must meet the above criteria.

  • Predominantly serve residents of Macomb County

  • Have a measurable high impact on beneficiaries

  • Demonstrate a sustainable plan

  • Meet minimum budget requirements

  • Expend the funds within 36 months

Note: Impact 100 Macomb County will not provide grants for: debt reduction; relief of operating deficits; interim or bridge funding; endowment funding; individuals or private foundations; activities that are partisan, legislative, or political in nature; fraternal, sectarian, or religious organizations, unless the project benefits the broader community; fund drives; annual appeals; fundraising events; or general capital campaigns unrelated to a specific project.
