On February 19, 2020, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced the Top 100 highest-scoring proposals in its 100&Change competition for a single $100 million grant to help solve one of the world's most critical social challenges. The Top 100 are featured on the newly-launched Lever for Change Bold Solutions Network, which showcases the rigorously evaluated proposals that emerge from all of the competitions Lever for Change manages.
Applicants must show evidence for how they will solve the problem, demonstrate that they're capable of carrying out the plan and explain how they'll sustain results after they've exhausted the grant money.
We were so impressed with the proposals - which range from eliminating blindness to ending domestic violence - and we knew you would be too! So, we've worked with MacArthur to bring you this selection of Charity Navigator rated 100&Change proposals from highly-rated nonprofits.
