The Unfunded List identifies and promotes great social change ideas that have not yet secured funding using a rigorous proposal evaluation process. All proposals submitted receive helpful feedback, but only those that make the greatest impression on our Evaluation Committee make the twice annual Unfunded List. 

Your proposal or idea could be featured on our official List if you submit it to Unfunded List for feedback from our Evaluation Committee. You will receive feedback and advice that can help your organization or mission, and have the possibility of being featured on our official List of underfunded ideas that deserve attention and recognition. 

You can also join our Evaluation Committee to give feedback and advice to other proposals and hone your skills and knowledge of the philanthropy world in our Library of Philanthropy Education.

The following organizations were of particular interest to our Committee out of the batch of proposals that were submitted in the spring of 2016.

Leveling the Playing Field donates gently used professional quality sports equipment to underfunded programs – making sports programs possible in communities where they wouldn’t be otherwise.​

The mission of the One Love Foundation, in honor of Yeardley Love, is to end relationship violence by educating, empowering, and activating young people in a movement for change.​
