Past NextGen Members
I am so excited and honored to be an Impact100 NextGen member! I recognize the importance and power of women who get together as a cohesive group to make a positive impact on the children and families of our community. I have seen the results of what this organization has done to help so many non-profit organizations, and now including Youth Village of which I am the Director. I am happy to be part of something that believes in impacting non-profits in our community.
Melanie Teague 2018-2020Thoughtful giving has always been important to me and this NextGen program was a great opportunity to establish a presence within the Impact100 organization during this season of my life. I am excited to be a part of a broader initiative to support our local community and nonprofits in a new way.
Amanda Sause 2018-2020I was introduced to Impact100 by my neighbors and friends. Their passion for the organization made me curious and after attending a membership meeting, I understood their belief in this organization. IMPACT women empower all the organizations they come in contact with and cover a multitude of causes in our area. Serving and growing alongside these women is a great honor and privilege.
To me Impact100 means getting the opportunity to be a small part of helping my hometown grow to provide opportunities for the people who have decided to call this place home. It is a way to enrich their lives and be a blessing to others so they can in turn bless someone else.
I am currently the President of Junior League of the Emerald Coast and we have multiple sustaining members of our League who are also members of Impact100. After listening to their experiences I knew Impact100 would be an invaluable organization to become a member of. Since joining the League I have taken an interest in finding ways to meet like-minded women who are servant leaders in our community, working together to make a meaningful difference.
I have become very ingrained in the local nonprofit community over the past nine years and see the struggle facing nonprofits every day. The need always far exceeds the resources, and seeing firsthand how Impact100 has made a difference for agencies like Shelter House is awe-inspiring. Empowering women to come together as volunteers and donors, contributing to local missions and raising the tide together to lift up local agencies has helped uncountable people in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Being a part of the incredible group of women that helps make this all happen through the NextGen program is truly an honor.
I joined to not only form great friendships with intelligent passionate women, but to have a hand in impacting positive changes to our local community within many different areas. Impact100 is unique because it not only empowers women, but it empowers the whole community it supports.
