IMPACT LAS VEGAS RECEIVES NONPROFIT STATUS

Impact Las Vegas, a new Southern Nevada nonprofit organization, has received IRS approval as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Impact Las Vegas is a women’s philanthropic giving circle. Membership consists of women who donate $1,000 each year.

Membership donations are pooled from a minimum of 100 members to fund an annual $100,000 grant to a Southern Nevada nonprofit organization in one of five focus areas: culture, education, environment, family or health and wellness.

Once the minimum 100-member threshold is reached, 100 percent of member donations are returned to the community in the form of a grant. Members cast one vote each to determine the nonprofit grant recipients for that year.

If membership grows as expected, it may provide its first award in June 2014.

In addition to membership donations, Impact Las Vegas also welcomes Friends of Impact Las Vegas donations in any amount to support the organization’s operating costs.

For more information or to become a member, visit impact-lv.org or email info@impact-lv.org.
