What kinds of awards are philanthropists able to sponsor?

Lever for Change focuses on competitions that will lead to groundbreaking social change at a deep scale. All competitions must offer a minimum of $10 million to selected applicants. There is no maximum grant size. Philanthropists have wide latitude to create an award that will achieve impact in their area of interest on a range of design dimensions, including issue-focus, geography, philanthropist recognition, judging criteria, final selection and others.
