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 earning the highest evaluations 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" Spring 2018 Unfunded List
The Spring 2018 pool of unfunded grant proposals and other materials was one of the strongest batches that we have ever 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.
The OASIS Initiative
Translators Without Voters
Global Press Institute
"The" Fall 2018 Unfunded List
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.
