Invitation to Impact: Lighting the Path to Community Transformation

Wendy H. Steele is the CEO and founder of Impact100, an organization that unites and empowers women to create transformational impact on the local and global level by pooling their philanthropic resources. The Morgridge Family Foundation learned about Wendy when she invited Carrie Morgridge to give the keynote speech at an Impact100 event in Palm Beach. Carrie was immediately impressed by Wendy’s contagious generosity and how her clear vision created a collective giving movement. Beginning in 2001 with just one chapter, Steele has created a global force for good with more than 60 chapters worldwide that have donated over $123 million to nonprofits in their communities. We knew Wendy had a story that needed to be shared.

MFF Publishing is proud to present Invitation to Impact: Lighting the Path to Community Transformation. Wendy writes about making an impact, the power of generosity, the design and growth of Impact100, and the mistakes and pitfalls she overcame along the way. Through the experiences she shares, readers are invited to imagine the impact they can have—if they accept the invitation. Learn more at www.WendyHSteele.com.

“A personal, practical guide to mobilizing local solutions to global problems.”

Adam Grant #1 New York Times best-selling author of Think Again and Host of the TED podcast WorkLife

“They say that innovation is born from necessity. Few understand this—live this—with stronger qualifications than Wendy Steele, who shares invaluable lessons which led to her standing as a philanthropic groundbreaker. The reach of Wendy’s work has changed lives, and her illuminating insights will empower more women to share in her success and give back with greater impact inside their local communities.”

Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker Founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Promise Fund of Florida

“'Invitation to Impact' is a reminder that by working together we make a much bigger impact than we can alone. The small ethical decisions we make each day may seem unimportant, but if millions make the same ethical decisions this will lead to change. The time has come for global cooperation on a large scale, and Steele’s book provides many stories that illustrate that such cooperation is our only hope of survival.”

Dr. Jane Goodall, Ph.D., DBE Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace
