KLM Scholarship foundation
The KLM Scholarship Foundation (KLM), an exciting new community partner for Impact Makers, raises funds and distributes book scholarship awards. These scholarships are academic-based and target Virginia college students faced with financial obstacles.
Impact Makers established a scholarship in partnership with KLM to award aid for tuition, mentorship, and internships. Three female students pursuing STEM degrees were granted over $12,000 each and provided mentorship by Impact Makers' employees.

Virginia Free and Charitable clinics
Automate Quarterly Reporting – The state of Virginia provides funds to the clinics to care for low-income, or uninsured adult Virginia residents in two major areas:
- Health Care Services – which covers mental health, dental and/or medical care
- Medications & Pharmacy Services – which covers prescriptions
The Director of Membership Services is the person that gets the information from the state and produces the two reports for each clinic on a quarterly basis. As well as a summary report for the state.
This means producing approximately 100 reports, in a short timeframe, which in the old way involved several Excel macros which at best were finicky, and sending approximately 50 emails to the various clinics. In this process, there was a lot of copying and pasting, and the chance of human error was high.
Impact Makers revamped the process using Microsoft Power Automate, which took the state-provided data(Excel), the required state reporting format (Excel), and a listing of Clinic Executive Directors (Excel). The processing reads the clinic data, state data, and produces the correct report(s) for each clinic, and emails them along with a letter via (Outlook).
At the end of the process, a summary report is compiled for reporting to the state of Virginia.
