A pipeline of bold ideas
The strongest proposals from 100&Change and other competitions run by Lever for Change will be publicly listed in the Bold Solutions Network, a repository containing the top-rated proposals for addressing the most pressing social issues of our time.
Each of these proposals undergoes extensive evaluation and due diligence, allowing donors to dive deeply into proposals of potential interest. This approach benefits applicants not selected for funding by competition sponsors by providing additional exposure to other potential funders.
Through the MacArthur Foundation’s 100&Change competition, we learned that supporting the ambitions of others provided an opportunity for us to bring exciting solutions and new ideas to the forefront. The competition generated more than 1,900 proposals from more than 50 countries, and the MacArthur Foundation was able to leverage more than $419 million in additional funding from other donors to support 100&Change applicants.
