Members of our Bold Solutions Network receive ongoing support and are promoted by Lever for Change. Our team curates and actively shares relevant solutions within our public and private collaborations with funders. Simultaneously, we help members improve their case for support, which mitigates the risk for donors who are considering significant, multi-year investments in social change.

Why the Bold Solutions Network?

In 2020, Lever for Change launched the Bold Solutions Network as a vital component of our mission to accelerate social change. Research shows that, while many donors aspire to support problem solvers, they often struggle to find, evaluate, and fund high-impact opportunities, in part because many philanthropists do not have the expertise or dedicated staff these efforts require. This leaves problem solvers under-resourced and unable to scale their programs.

Lever for Change bridges these gaps by connecting donors with problem solvers through customized challenges and tailored funding opportunities.
