Isabel Allard and Sydney Noble
Isabel Allard, a junior at Greenwich Academy, is the Founder and Director of Generation Impact Fairfield County, a collective grant-making program for high school girls. Inspired by the programs’ parent non-profit organization, Impact Fairfield County, Isabel saw an opportunity for girls to learn more about the needs that people are facing in our community and the non-profits and programs that are working to meet those needs. Generation Impact was launched in the fall of 2017 with the goal of educating girls in our community on how to give thoughtfully and is now in its first grant season. It is made up of girls from 15 different schools in Fairfield County who review the grants, conduct site visits, hear from the non-profits, and ultimately vote on the finalist. Isabel leads the leadership group made up of 14 chairs that meets twice monthly to facilitate the process.
