Through Impact Club, as Impact Venture Capitalists, we invest heavily in local charities that demonstrate a powerful “Story Engine,” and have proven their willingness to fight for their cause – by competing in and winning a high-stakes competition. As a result, Impact Club, through Impact Venture Capitalism has dramatically multiplied the Impact that a single person can have on charities in their local community.

The Charities

HUGS (Help Us Grow Strong)

Strength To The Homeless

HUGS (Help Us Grow Strong) is a Prince William based, totally volunteer, nonprofit organization started in 2015 to help our unsheltered population living in tent communities. We provide, through donations, a weekly outreach at two locations in our county: Woodbridge and Manassas. Volunteers sign up to bring a hot meal, provide other supplies, like nonperishable food, body wipes, water, blankets, which assist survival outside, or offer friendly conversation.

The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation

Joy For Hospitalized Children

The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation supports families whose children are facing more than most do their entire life. These amazing children learn to overcome, find joy, share their precious smiles with the world, and “dance in the rain”…all while in the midst of some very difficult storms. For these children, the simple joys of childhood are often put aside and replaced with hospital visits, surgeries, pills, therapy and equipment to meet their special needs. BUT yet…. they dance.

This Is My Brave
Jennifer Marshall
Ending The Stigma

This Is My Brave is a leading platform and community for people to share their stories of living with mental illness and substance abuse to end stigma. We do this though our flagship production “This Is My Brave – The Show” which features people from the community who have auditioned to be cast in the show to share true stories live on stage through poetry, original music, comedy and personal essays.
