Grants for 2018 BridgeBuilder Challenge to address urgent global challenges
 

Background

BridgeBuilder invests in the building and repairing of unique bridges between people, organizations, issues, and beliefs at the intersections of peace, prosperity, and planet.  In doing so, BridgeBuilder aims to promote meaningful engagement, greater social cohesion, and sustainable, community-led change.

Our world, our countries, and our communities are facing great challenges: from conflict to inequality to natural disasters. These issues stretch beyond borders and across cultures, they demand our collective attention, collaboration and best thinking to overcome them.

Communities far and wide are tackling these challenges in ways that could benefit from further support and connection to one another. This innovation Challenge—conducted in collaboration with GHR Foundation—will support organizations working to address urgent global challenges at the intersections of peace, prosperity, and planet in radically new ways. How might we design and innovate together for the global good?

Submissions are welcome from registered nonprofit, civil society, community-based, and for-profit organizations working anywhere in the United States or around the world.

Our Submission Guidelines:

  • Bridge two or more topic areas: Ideas must address two or more of the topic areas (peace, prosperity, and planet).
  • Originality: Ideas should also strive to build and repair unique bridges between people, issues, and beliefs that promote meaningful engagement, greater social cohesion, and sustainable, community-led change.
  • Actionable and tangible: Ideas must be actionable and center on tangible results in the community of focus (rather than research, convenings, policy development, or advocacy).
  • Within funding scope: Ideas that can be implemented within a 36 month timeline and budget requests of less than US$500,000.

Selected top ideas will:

  • Receive a share of $1 million in seed funding from GHR Foundation
  • Join a BridgeBuilder cohort of innovative organizations working to address urgent needs
  • Take part in a kick-off workshop, during which they will meet other social innovators and further design and build their approaches with tools and expertise from GHR Foundation and OpenIDEO
  • Receive ongoing partnership support from GHR Foundation, potential connection to other funder networks, and media exposure.

Final Submissions Due:

June 4 @ 5pm PT
