About the role
Impact100 Melbourne is seeking effective and passionate volunteer Committee Members to lead this highly celebrated giving circle in 2020.
As a volunteer Committee Member, you will provide vital volunteer leadership by stewarding this giving circle, also known as a collective giving group, in its promotion, growth, governance and ongoing sustainability.
Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation (the Foundation), on behalf of Impact100 Melbourne, is looking for up to eight Committee Members to lead and oversee the day-to-day operations and internal/external stakeholder management of this membership-based giving circle. The Committee’s direct relationship with the Foundation is via the Foundation’s Chief Marketing & Development Officer.
About Impact100 Melbourne:
Impact100 Melbourne is a giving circle, also known as a collective giving group, and is a named sub-fund and giving account of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
The structure of Impact100 Melbourne is simple, 100 people donate $1,000 each per year to raise a total donation of $100,000. Donations are pooled to make one large grant to an eligible Melbourne non-profit organisation working to support that year’s focus area.
Impact100 Melbourne invites grant applications from nonprofit organisations who meet the fund’s criteria. These applications are shortlisted down to four, and the shortlist is reviewed and approved by the Foundation.
Shortlisted organisations present to Impact100 Melbourne Members at an annual Grant Awards event. Members then vote to recommend each year’s grant recipient.
Every member who donates $1,000 is provided one vote – whether they give $1,000 or $10,000. The Board of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation approves the final decision. Donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible as Impact100 Melbourne is an established named sub-fund and giving account of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
Impact100 Melbourne is a community made up of people who want to create a social impact larger than what they could achieve alone. Impact100 Melbourne helps members give strategically and donor members know their donation is spent and makes a difference. Donor members can participate in the grantmaking process and understand our community’s challenges and needs, and you will be part of powerful community philanthropy.
