One of the fundamental tenets of the Impact Model used by Impact Grants Chicago, is that 100% of each $1,000 membership donation is used to fund the annual $100,000 grants to nonprofits.

In order to achieve this goal, we graciously accept additional donations from individuals and local businesses to help defray the organization’s operating expenses.

Linda Havlin Leadership Legacy Sponsorship Fund

The Linda Havlin Leadership Legacy Sponsorship Fund  creates sponsored memberships of $1,000 each in Impact Grants Chicago for young women with leadership potential who otherwise would not be able to participate due to financial constraints.

This sponsorship fund has been established in honor of Linda Havlin, a founding member and valued part of the leadership team of Impact Grants Chicago, who passed away tragically on May 9, 2019. If you wish to make a donation to this fund, please add “Linda Havlin” on the “in memory of” or “in honor of” line below.

Linda’s family will be notified of all donations made to the fund.
