Columbia Business School students reviewed the highest-rated applications in the MacArthur Foundation's 100&Change competition (using a rubric created by the MacArthur Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors) and then awarded $100,000 to Futures Without Violence.
“Open competitions like 100&Change uncover a greater number of excellent organizations — like Futures Without Violence — than can be funded by a single donor,” said Jeff Ubois, our Vice President of Knowledge Management. “Yet the grant proposals foundations receive are shared rarely, if at all. Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, MacArthur Foundation, Columbia Business School, and the donors supporting this award to Futures Without Violence are showing the value of freely exchanging information — through services like our Bold Solutions Network.”
Lever for Change is excited to have partnered with MacArthur Foundation, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, Columbia Business School on this award. Heartfelt thanks to all the award funders: the Ford Foundation, Seven Turns Fund, Three Cairns Fund, and Tony and Sandra Tamer.
