News & Updates

Charitable Initiative Started in County – The Salem News, June 19, 2018

The Dent County Community Foundation is initiating a charitable funding program called Impact 100 Dent to improve the quality of life in Dent County. Dent County Community Foundation hosted a reception Friday, June 15, to share information about Impact 100 Dent. This pass-through initiative allows women to make a transforming impact on the community by promoting meaningful and sustainable projects of area non-profit organizations.

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks, based in Springfield, was intrigued with the idea being carried out in several dozen large metropolitan areas across the country uniting generous women to give to local charitable efforts with new funding. The Impact 100 movement was started in 2001 by Wendy Steele in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area. It began by working to find a minimum of 100 women, referred to as members, who would give annually. These gifts would then provide funds to distribute larger grants that would have an impact and make a difference for charitable efforts in the local community. Dent County Community Foundation is one of 49 affiliate foundations in CFO that are found in Missouri cities and towns south of the Missouri River. CFO was interested in taking the Impact 100 model and adapting it for smaller towns, thereby increasing dollars raised for charities. Local women interested in becoming a member of Impact 100 Dent may contact Mary Beth Cook, Coordinator of Dent County Community Foundation at (573) 453-6091.
