How does Lever for Change help philanthropists who want to give to social change causes?

Lever for Change is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to unlock significant philanthropic capital and help donors leverage their resources to accelerate change around the world’s biggest social challenges. Building off of the success of MacArthur’s 100&Change, Lever for Change connects donors with high-impact philanthropic opportunities through either customized competitions or by matching donors with the top vetted proposals from such competitions through an online searchable database. Through a rigorous approach, we provide philanthropists with opportunities to invest in the most promising, bold ideas that will move the needle on the issues they care about most.
