How might we reinforce a culture of generosity by creating charitable giving solutions that are more accessible, inclusive, and effective?

People are innately generous, but the giving process can be complex. It can be hard to find the right organizations to support, know how much to give, or understand the impact of a gift. We believe the giving landscape is ripe for innovation that will make it easier for donors to give. As the body of research around individual giving behavior grows, this program hopes to bridge the gap between research and real world innovation—by getting better products into the hands of everyday givers. 

Our goal is to optimize and reimagine tools and products that will help all donors give more and give better.  

Alongside the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this program challenges our global community of innovators to come together and build solutions to address the following question: How might we reinforce a culture of generosity by creating charitable giving solutions that are more accessible, inclusive, and effective? Together, we’ll explore why everyday givers play such an important role, how the state of giving is rapidly evolving alongside societal shifts, and the unprecedented opportunity to design tools that empower everyday donors to have an impact on the causes they care about. 

Submissions are due by 5:00pm PST on November 6th, 2020
