100 & Change is a MacArthur Foundation competition for a $100 million grant to fund a project aimed at making measurable progress toward solving a significant problem.
“According to The Foundation Center, the average size of a foundation grant was about $138,000 in 2012. By funding at a level far above what’s typical in philanthropy, we can address problems and support solutions that are radically different in scale, scope, and complexity. $100 million is a large enough sum to focus on a serious problem and its solution in a meaningful and lasting way.” (100andchange.org)
Any organization other than government agencies can apply. There are eligibility rules. You will have to first register to apply. According to their website, they’re expecting most applications to be focused on domestic issues in the United States but welcome international applications too. We hope to inspire a wide range of applications that propose real, measurable solutions to significant problems from any field or sector.
Applications are due no later than Monday, October 3, 2016. No field is out of bounds in this competition. They do stress that all proposals come up with a serious solution to a significant problem that has a charitable purpose.
