The Case Foundation is giving away $650,000 in grants and prizes as part of its initiative, Finding Fearless, with REI & Microsoft!
The first phase is to get crowdsourced nominations of “fearless changemakers,” people who have a social change project in the early stages and a Fearless prize could help them make the leap to scaling. The point is that the initiative is trying to identify and support innovative approaches to on the ground social change.
Here’s how they are describing it:
We are looking for stories of the unsung, unnoticed and uncelebrated individuals in communities across the country that have a successful track record of tackling social challenges because their approach is bold, uncommon, experimental, unconventional, fearless.
If that describes your social change work or you know someone whose work fits this description, you better apply or nominate today because they are only accepting 1,000 applications and my guess the those spots will be grabbed up pretty quick.
