Reveal 
Reception...












April 26, 2012
Reveal Reception
Sponsored by:

We joined IMPACT 100 in 2011 because we liked the ideas behind it.  Women coming together to see what needs to be done, and then doing it, is not a new concept.  But everything we heard about IMPACT 100  indicated a well-managed, highly productive opportunity.  We considered our donations investments in our community.  Joining a focus group just made sense.  It let us see the people behind the grant requests, talk to them, get to know more of their story than a ten minute presentation could ever tell.  We chose the Environment, Recreation and Preservation focus group.  By the time everyone came together to vote, we had learned about places and much needed projects we hadn't known existed.  We had become both intellectually and emotionally invested.  While our candidate did not win, we are very glad we had actively participated in the choices.  It took being part of IMPACT 100 to a whole other level.
  
       
CONGRATULATIONS IMPACT 100

222 in 2012!!


Joy Allen, President

Simply, THANK YOU, thank you for being a member of IMPACT 100 Owensboro in 2012!

Behind every successful Membership Drive, is a person willing to make the extra needed phone calls, to drive across town to pick up one last membership form, to take the time to write another hand written note to a potential member, or to drop what she is doing and be available to talk about IMPACT 100 Owensboro any time of the day.  That willing person is Jean Yewell.  Without a doubt, our Membership Chair's efforts exemplify The Power of One!  So many people are responsible for IMPACT's success this year but Jean's diligence never stopped - not even after the Reveal Reception!  Thank you to ALL those involved in making 2012 the 2nd highest membership total in IMPACT's history!!

As our Membership drive has now come to an end, we couldn't be in better hands than Pat Jones, Grant Chair, and Helen Mountjoy, Grant Co-Chair.  These two ladies are in high gear as they prepare for grant applications, train focus area chairs & co-chairs, and assemble & prepare focus groups for the job ahead.  I encourage you to get involved as much as your busy schedule allows.  You will not regret serving on a focus group; it is the heart of our organization.

We have so much to look forward to and October will be here before we know it!   Thank you again for believing in our mission, your POWER OF ONE truly makes a difference.

Joy Allen
IMPACT 100 Owensboro President

 

Jean Yewell, 2012 Membership Chair

  $222,000 in 2012 !!!
 

Yes, we have grown since the Reveal!  This has been a whirlwind membership campaign and with the help of the membership and board we have increased the number of participants and therefore, the grant amount for 2012.  Thank you for your participation as a 2012 IMPACT 100 Owensboro member.  
 
The Reveal was truly a celebration and we appreciate your attendance.  Watch for the group photo in the OMI very soon.  I wish each of you could have attended the Reveal.  We had a great time and US Bank provided the perfect venue and gracious hospitality.    Every member is special and the perfect example of the "Power of One".   Just think of the Power of 222 members! 
 
I am excited to work with you as we progress through the focus group process and site visits and finally come together for the Annual Meeting in October.  Enjoy each other as we join together to demonstrate the "Power of One" in the greater Owensboro Area in 2012.

Why We Joined a Focus Group ...

We joined IMPACT 100 Owensboro in 2011 because we liked the ideas behind it.  Women coming together to see what needs to be done, and then doing it, is not a new concept.  But everything we heard about IMPACT 100 Owensboro indicated a well-managed, highly productive opportunity.  We considered our donations investments in our community.  Joining a focus group just made sense.  It let us see the people behind the grant requests, talk to them, get to know more of their story than a ten minute presentation could ever tell.  We chose the Environment, Recreation and Preservation focus group.  By the time everyone came together to vote, we had learned about places and much needed projects we hadn't known existed.  We had become both intellectually and emotionally invested.  While our candidate did not win, we are very glad we had actively participated in the choices.  It took being part of IMPACT 100 to a whole other level.       Kay and Lynn Tichenor

 
 I have been a member of Impact 100 for three years and have totally enjoyed every aspect of my experience.   When I wanted to become more involved with the organization I decided to be part of a focus group.  As a focus group member, I loved reading and discussing the grants.  I jotted down questions or comments and was ready to discuss pros and cons at the focus meeting.  The site visits were also helpful in choosing which non-profit organizations great ideas and programs would benefit our community the most.  I was able to meet the people involved, see firsthand what the project was about and what it would mean to our community.  This encounter alone was such a learning and educational experience.  The non-profits welcomed us so warmly when we visited that it was hard to leave.  You just wanted to stay and help them reach their goals. 
 
Being part of a focus group, I was able to have greater input in deciding which proposals would have the biggest impact to our community.  I am sure you will experience the same if you choose to be part of a focus group.  As I have become more comfortable and more involved I am more confident in expressing my ideas.  Being part of the process has also helped me feel 100% confident in our final grant winners.   I hope to see you at a focus group!!!!!!!!!!
