Impact Fairfield County is hosting a get-together on Oct. 18 at the Granola Bar in Greenwich from 7 to 9 p.m.
Among those scheduled to be on hand are the leaders of the organizations that received Impact Fairfield County’s two previous $100,000 Impact Grants: Jason Shaplen, CEO of Inspirica, and Quentin Ball, newly appointed executive director of The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education (CSACCE).
Shaplen is expected to provide an update on the progress of the early childhood and parenting program, which was funded by the Impact grant.
Ball succeeded Ivonne Zucco as executive director of CSACCE. He’ll discuss how the Impact Grant will affect the implementation of the Fairfield Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners (SAFE) Program.
Impact Fairfield County engages women in Fairfield County in local philanthropy to reach the underserved and improve lives. Each member contributes $1,000 that is pooled to provide $100,000 grants to local nonprofits.
