We're Launching a New Service

Over the years, we’ve received feedback from many of you that you would like to use a challenge to provide general operating support to a cohort of organizations. We heard you! Lever for Change is excited to announce that we are launching a donor service that offers funders an opportunity to help grow or strengthen a field of their choosing through an open call challenge. This service will complement our existing challenge model. Instead of using a challenge to scale a single solution to a critical challenge, this challenge model will allow funders to provide general operating support to a cohort of organizations within a particular field.

Bold Solutions Network

Lever for Change competitions provide the opportunity for donors, nonprofits, and social entrepreneurs to connect and solve global challenges together. The top-ranked solutions amplified in our Bold Solutions Network propose bold ideas on a diverse range of issues. Through this Network, we catalyze big investments in outstanding teams and accelerate large-scale social change. Lever for Change is on track to unlock $2.5 billion in philanthropic capital to scale high-impact solutions by the end of 2025.
