Quarterly Update on Funding

To date, Lever for Change has unlocked over $1 billion in funding for high-impact solutions and strengthened dozens of top organizations.

Progress toward $2.5 Billion Unlocked

Graph showing Lever for Change's progress toward reaching the goal of influencing $2.5B by 2025; so far, 43% of this goal has been met.

In September 2022, Lever for Change surpassed our initial goal of helping donors award $1 billion in funding to high-impact organizations. We have set our sights on a new target: we plan to leverage a total of $2.5 billion in funding by 2025.

$416.6 million of the unlocked funding has come from awards granted through one of our challenges.

$652.2 million of the unlocked funding was awarded to teams outside of the competition process. This includes grants to projects that have been amplified by the Bold Solutions Network and/or strengthened by the Lever for Change competition experience.

Since the Network’s launch in February 2020, we have shared Network members’ proposals with potential donors a total of 4,847 times.

We have new challenges launching soon — stay tuned for more information.
