IMPACT100 NORTHWEST FLORIDA NEWSLETTER | OCTOBER 2021
Come join the excitement as we announce the 10 Grant Finalists for 2021! While every nonprofit is worthy of our grant, our Grant Review Committees have worked hard to narrow down the 20+ eligible applicants to the top 2 in each of the five categories. Learn who they are and their projects that will make an "impact" to our community.
Prior to the announcement, mix and mingling with fellow members and nonprofit organizations while enjoying food and drinks from our community partner.
Then the big reveal of which nonprofit organization within Okaloosa or Walton county reached the finalist level.
Once we find out who the grant finalists are, we will hear from our President on how Impact100 NWF will be "Making An Impact $100K At A Time"starting in 2022.
Hope to see you there!

GRANT RECIPIENT UPDATE
Reported by: Alison McDowell, Director
Project Name: Building a Better Bay
CBA exceeded our goals for this grant. Since 2019, we recycled over 240 tons of oyster shell. We have already begun using that shell in oyster reef restoration, restoring 1 acre of oyster habitat in Choctawhatchee Bay at three local sites, including Cessna Park in Walton County and two homeowner sites. We have collected enough shell to construct Liza Jackson Park’s planned living shoreline, beginning in October of 2021.
