Local Nonprofit Recruiting 100 women members by 12/31/2013

LAS VEGAS, NV – September 2013 — Impact Las Vegas, a new Southern Nevada non-profit, is seeking 100 women who are motivated to make a difference in our community to join the organization by the end of the year.

Impact Las Vegas is a nonprofit women’s giving circle based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Membership consists of women who donate $1,000 each year by December 31st. 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 & wellness.

Once the minimum of 100 member threshold is reached, one hundred percent of member donations are returned to the community in the form of a grant. In June 2014 Impact Las Vegas members will each cast one vote to determine the nonprofit grant recipient for that year.

“Most of us are not in the financial position to expand a day care program providing free or low-cost services for low-income families; or to help a senior community center purchase a new roof and build a larger recreational room,” said Maureen Romito, Founder and President. “However, all of us want to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors and families, and to have this kind of significant effect and transform our community in a positive way.”

“Impact Las Vegas,” she added, “puts each of us as Members in the financial position to make a significant, lasting difference in the lives of Southern Nevada citizens and to fund projects such as these to benefit our neighbors and community in a substantial way.”

Impact Las Vegas is holding multiple networking events over the next few months for women to find out more information about the organization while getting a chance to network with other women and have a good time.
