"One empowered woman can make an impact. Many empowered women are capable of driving transformational change."
After only three years, Impact100 Wakatipu has donated $488,000 to local organisations in the Wakatipu.
We are so proud of our achievement, but what we are most proud of is seeing the impact our giving is having.
Our major $100,000 grants create transformational opportunities for these vital organisations, and even $5000
can make a difference which is detailed in our 2021 Giving Impact Report.
By the end of 2023 we will have donated more than $500,000 locally, and our target is to hit $600,000.

Founder Alison Wildey called the donation a high point in a 20-year journey fighting the “invisibility” that society can inflict on people with disabilities.
