British Council #IdeasChangeLives Global Innovation Challenge 2019 (£20,000 Prize)

British Council #IdeasChangeLives is the global innovation challenge to find digital solutions to some of the world’s greatest problems. British Council is looking for people with a fresh, entrepreneurial spirit and a big idea that has the potential to make a positive impact for communities across the globe.

British Council accept ‘early stage’ applications, meaning you don’t necessarily need a working prototype when you make your application. You don’t need to be working in the digital or technology sector to apply.

Prize: The winning pitch will get £20,000 to invest in their idea, as well as mentorship and support from the British Council for a full year.

Application Deadline: 10 January 2020.

The Pollination Project (up to $1000 USD)

Seed grants are available up to $1000 USD to support NGOs, Social Initiatives and Grassroot Grouls working on any social project.

The Purpose of a Pollination Project Seed Grant is to support passionate, committed people with an early-stage social change vision. We fund individuals and community groups, and you do not need to be a registered or established organization to apply.

Our Grants are designed to:

  • Support passionate, committed people with a social change vision.
  • Support projects in their early stage of development and where a small amount of money will go a very long way – we want to kick start your dreams for a better world.
  • Help ensure sustainability of your work by building resilience or fundraising ability– during review, we often ask: “what happens once the grant runs out?”
  • Cover costs such as supplies, program materials, direct travel expenses for program implementation, website fees, discounted professional services, printing, copying, promotional costs, technical support.
  • Pay for 501(c)(3) filing fees and expenses only if your project meets our specific conditions. Please read more about the funding conditions here.
  • Support projects with a clear target audience, and a compelling plan to reach and impact that target audience in a positive way. If your project involves video or other media production, then this element of your plan will receive particularly careful attention from our team.
  • Support projects that do not expect to earn profit, or where any income will be used for a purely charitable effort. We do also offer Pay it forward loans to support for-profit social benefit projects.
  • Cover costs similar to these examples.

Apply if you are interested. Open to everyone around the world
