MacArthur Foundation 100 & Change
Type of Project: Proposals must identify a problem and offer a solution that promises significant and durable change. We are looking for solutions that have a strong existing evidence base and a team that has demonstrated an ability to adapt and grow a solution. By funding at a level far above what’s typically available in philanthropy, we can address problems and support solutions that are radically different in scale, scope, and complexity.
Location: We welcome applications from charitable organizations worldwide
Eligibility: Charitable organizations may apply. We consider applicants of any size, but we have found that organizations often have trouble absorbing and effectively deploying grants that are significantly larger than their current annual operating budgets. We strongly encourage you to think critically about whether or not your organization would be able to take on such a large amount of capital over only a few years. We will ask you to share three years of audited financials as part of the Application.
Grant Size: 1 x $100 million (USD). Applications for amounts under this will not be considered. While the 100&Change competition will provide some indirect cost support, we will not fund proposals for general operating support through this process.
Closing Date: 15 August
