Bold Solutions Network

Lever for Change launched the Bold Solutions Network as a vital component of its mission to accelerate social change and help philanthropists overcome the challenges that often prevent them from achieving their philanthropic ambitions. The Bold Solutions Network website is a searchable online collection of summaries of highly-rated, rigorously evaluated proposals or, “bold solutions,” that emerge from open competitions managed by Lever for Change.

Through the Bold Solutions Network, Lever for Change is building a pipeline of organizations ready to accelerate social change and matching those organizations with philanthropists. For participating organizations, the Bold Solutions Network offers ongoing learning and networking opportunities to strengthen the impact of their work, raise their visibility and increase their potential to secure additional funding.
