    “The Willoughby Award is for all of us,” said Katherine Fulton, Impact100 Sonoma member, founder of the Catalyst Fund and  2022 Willoughby Award Winner.

    “Impact100 Sonoma and Catalyst Fund both stand for and depend on cooperation and generosity. We can accomplish so much more together than separately as we work to address Sonoma’s growing challenges and support our great nonprofits. The complexity of what faces us requires this.”
