Connecting the "Will" with the "Way" to Expedite Change


Linking vision and strategy, dreamers and doers, changemakers and problem solvers. That's the key to solving the challenges that confront communities around the country–and one of the main reasons Upswell exists. It's also the goal of the MacArthur Foundation’s new nonprofit affiliate, Lever for Change, intended to connect philanthropists and social change organizations. Throw in the fact that Lever for Change, like MacArthur, is based in Chicago – site of Upswell this November – and we knew the stars had aligned!
