2018 Honorees · The Unfunded List

Fall 2018 Update

We received our largest pool of proposals ever over the summer of 2018 and reviewed them diligently this past fall. This round, our review culminated with the first ever Evaluator Summit 2018 at George Washington University. The Summit gave us the opportunity to connect some of our applicants directly with reviewers as well as to build both fundraising and evaluation skills.

Spring 2018 Update

The Spring 2018 pool of unfunded grant proposals and other materials that we received was one of the strongest we received. And we delivered more feedback than ever before. After speaking with each organization and delivering feedback from hundreds of experts we’ve chosen five organizations to whose proposals merit highlighting. Our founder and board choose proposals to highlight each round based on a variety of factors mostly merit and issue area importance.
