Nashville, Tenn. —More than 100 women from every walk of life—from elected officials to entrepreneurs to retired philanthropists—gathered at the home of the Honorable Megan Barry for networking and learning about the mission of Impact100 Nashville at its Spring Forward Happy Hour on March 23rd.

Members and guests heard from the Honorable Megan Barry and Ginger Duncan, Board Chair, Impact100 Nashville, about how they got involved with the organization and why they support the women’s giving circle. Attendees also heard from Kristin Allender, Executive Director, Tennessee Kids Belong, who shared her experience as a grant recipient last year and how they have used the funds to help children in foster care find families.

The goal of Spring Forward is to recruit 100 new members to make an even greater impact in the community through Impact100 Nashville’s annual grant program to nonprofits. Become a member here.
