1) Objective

The MacArthur Foundation has launched the third round of its 100&Change competition, offering a $100 million grant to address one of the world’s most critical social challenges. This competition seeks to inspire organizations globally to propose innovative solutions that promise significant, durable change. The focus this year incorporates the Foundation’s Just Imperative, emphasizing projects that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. Since its inception, 100&Change has funded transformative projects, such as educational programs for displaced children and initiatives to end homelessness. By encouraging large-scale, impactful solutions, the competition aims to drive meaningful progress in addressing pressing global issues.

Proposals from all sectors and anywhere in the world are encouraged.

2) Eligibility

The competition is open to organizations and collaborations from any sector, working in any field, anywhere in the world.

3) Location

Actions can take place worldwide.

4) Budget

A single grant of $100 million will be awarded to the winning proposal. This substantial funding aims to support solutions that are radically different in scale, scope, and complexity from those typically addressed by philanthropy.

5) Application

Interested organizations must register online by 5 p.m. U.S. Central Time on Thursday, August 15, 2024. Complete applications are due by 5 p.m. U.S. Central Time on Thursday, September 5, 2024.
