The Impact 100 Tasmania Team

We are a team of passionate and motivated Tasmanians who want to make a difference to the state we love. Our vision is for a more giving Tasmania and to change lives. Each of us have been involved in many charitable and voluntary roles for many years, but feel the impact is often lost when only smaller less significant funds are raised, or when larger fundraising organisations administration overheads absorb large amounts of revenue.

We are Tasmanians of all ages and backgrounds pooling our resources to make a lasting positive impact on the quality of life in our state. We believe by the pooling of funds with the tried and tested Impact 100 model we can make a huge impact on our community and extraordinary change to the lives of Tasmanians.We share a common goal, to make a difference, to provide opportunities to the less fortunate and to create the place we want Tasmania to be.

In 2016 the Impact 100 Tasmanian Committee was formed and we awarded our first grant to Family Planning Tasmania in 2017. We are excited to make an impact again in 2018.
