Our Impact

"One empowered woman can make an impact. Many empowered women are capable of driving transformational change."

Our Impact 

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.

This year we have $208,000 to grant, so by the end of 2023 we will have donated nearly $700,00

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.
