Vital Impact, founded in 1998, is one of the only organizations focused on providing support to women over 35 who are transitioning careers and enrolled in an educational program to achieve this goal. We do this by raising funds for scholarships for women throughout Massachusetts, who are eligible to apply. We are proud of these courageous women, many of whom have a passion for giving back, and a desire to make an impact in the lives of others in their communities and the world.
The mission of Vital Impact, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to raise funds to provide life-changing scholarships for education to women in Massachusetts, who are at least 35 years of age, enabling them to transition to a more rewarding career and create the life they desire for themselves and future generations and building a community of empowerment and support.
Thank You for your support of the Vital Impact Spring Gala!
What an amazing event, our first annual spring fundraising gala at the City View Ballroom at the World Trade Center in Boston, MA!
A special thank you Liisa Budge Johnson, a Vital Impact scholarship recipient who moved us with the story of her journey and a reminder to “make lemonade” at every opportunity. And Thank You to our keynote speaker, Hank Phillippi Ryan, who shared her story about her career that has gone from radio reporter to Rolling Stone Magazine to the US Senate to undercover investigations at Boston’s Channel 7 – and about making a career change at mid-life.
Thanks to all who participated, and especially our sponsors, it looks like we are on track to potentially double the number of scholarships to be awarded in 2015!
Thank you to our sponsors without whom this event would not have been possible:
