Collective Giving Model Celebrated by Charla Burchett as Impact100 SRQ Awards $404,000 to Local Non-Profit Grant Recipients 


Charla M. Burchett, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Sarasota office, recently attended Impact100 SRQ’s Annual Meeting and Grant Awards Celebration, which awarded four separate $101,000 grants to nonprofit organizations impacting Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

The Annual Meeting and Grant Awards Celebration took place on November 6th and focused on presentations made by five finalists for transformational grant awards, each contributing to one of five focus areas identified: Arts & Culture, Environment and Recreation, Health and Wellness, Family, and Education. Following the presentations, the organization’s members voted on the recipients of the grant awards. Charla participated in the Grant Review Phase by serving on a Focus Area Committee to review applications, perform site visits, and vote for a finalist from a specific focus area. The 2021 grants were awarded to initiatives by Girls Inc., Crowley Museum & Nature Center Inc., HOPE Family Services, Inc., and Resilient Retreat, Inc. 

A longstanding In-Kind Donor, Charla is also a Founding Member of Impact100 SRQ and was recently named to the Impact100 SRQ Advisory Task Force.


Impact100 SRQ is one of more than sixty chapters worldwide and joins its sister chapters in embracing the local collective giving model. Formed in 2018, Impact100 SRQ brings together a diverse group of women that annually fund transformational grants to local nonprofits in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties. The model is simple. At least 100 women each give a $1,000 tax deductible donation, and together they collectively award grants in increments of at least $100,000 to local nonprofits in five focus areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment & Recreation, Family and Health & Wellness.  Each member’s annual donation strengthens the power of giving and funds the innovative projects that make a high “Impact” and sustainable difference in our community.
