Funder: Lever for Change
About Lever for Change
Lever for Change is a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation affiliate, whose mission is to unlock significant philanthropic capital and accelerate social change around the world’s most pressing challenges. Lever for Change helps philanthropists source vetted, high-impact opportunities in two ways: by designing and managing customized competitions and by matching them with the top vetted proposals from all of its competitions in the Bold Solutions Network, a searchable online database.
About the Opportunity
Racial Equity 2030 will award $90 million to fund bold solutions to drive an equitable future for children, families, and communities across the globe. Hosted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the challenge will invite, build, and scale ideas for transformative change in the social, economic, political, and institutional systems that uphold inequities.
The Challenge is open to teams from anywhere in the world. Proposed ideas must embrace and reflect the values of racial equity and justice. They must be led by a team that centers on lived experience and includes communities closest to the issue as part of leadership in the project.
Applicants are welcome to propose early-to-mid-stage ideas, as up to ten teams will be selected as Finalists and each will receive a $1 million planning grant, as well as nine months of capacity-building support to further develop their project and strengthen their applications.
Interested applicants must register by January 28, 2021. Applications are due February 25, 2021.
