Impact100 Louisville’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, support nonprofits, and highlight unmet needs in our community. Through grant-making, we invest in nonprofits financially and by partnering with them to familiarize ourselves with their programs, services, and the communities they serve. In return, our partners assure us our process allows them to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do and the impact they have.

Community Impact:

Funding from Impact100 Louisville will support YouthBuild Louisville’s Smoketown Hopebox Laundromat +  Community Space project. The renovation of vacant properties into a local laundromat and meeting/community  spaces will provide much needed amenities and will enable the development of programs to stimulate the  Smoketown economy. Current laundry facilities are over 2-1/2 miles away. In addition, the Smoketown Hopebox  facility will function as a site for arts and culture activities, offer trainings, ensure job development for the community  through the Business Incubator program and continued partnership with employers and corporations. Local  nonprofit and corporate partners will utilize the space to offer training, workshops and UofL clinic hours will be  offered by our wellness partners.

2020 Grant Recipient:

Louisville Urban League

Award:

$103,000

Focus Area:

Education

Details:

With Impact 100’s help, we will enhance and expand the Urban League’s youth programming into the  Sports and Learning complex as it opens in 2021. Our education work is encompassed within our Equitable Education  Engagement (E3) model which is the Louisville Urban League’s model for youth and family engagement opportunities.  This model was developed in direct response to the achievement gap that begins before most of the students we  serve arrive on their first day of kindergarten, widens as those same students matriculate through 12th grade, and  never completely closes after traditional schooling.
