The Accelerator Grant

Learn about the all-new Accelerator Grant

This year, Impact100 Metro Denver is extending our grant program with an Accelerator Grant to support a small non-profit in a southwest Denver neighborhood (map below), focusing on improving the lives of community residents. The Accelerator Grant amount is $25,000 in the first year and, depending on available funding, we anticipate the selected non-profit will receive this same amount for two additional years, for a total of $75,000. This grant can be used for operational needs or programmatic goals. (However, we cannot fund capital projects, religious, partisan, and political activities).
