Impact100 Fannin County’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, support nonprofits, and highlight unmet needs in our community. Through the grant process, we invest in nonprofits financially and partner with them to familiarize ourselves with their programs, services, and the communities they serve. In doing so, we enable them to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do and the impact they have.
