Impact100 Essex Awards Equity Grants

Monday, December 4, 2023

Impact100 Essex announced that three Essex County nonprofits are the recipients of its 2023 Equity Grants: SHE Wins Inc., AAPI Montclair, and Keys 2 Success.

With over 170 members, Impact100 Essex is a collective philanthropic group founded and funded by women in Essex County. For the past three years, in response to research showing a discrepancy in funding to BIPOC-led nonprofit organizations, Impact100 Essex’s Equity Grants have provided unrestricted funds to small BIPOC-led nonprofits.

A'Dorian Murray-Thomas, Founder and Executive Director of SHE Wins Inc., a leadership initiative for girls in Newark, receiving a $15,000 grant, said, “We are honored to be a recipient of this Equity Grant. When you invest in the hearts and minds of young women today, you invest in a better tomorrow for us all.” While inclusive of all girls, SHE Wins Inc. primarily aims to serve girls affected by inner city violence.
