Case Foundation Finding Fearless Campaign

Case Foundation seeks social innovators

The Case Foundation has launched the Finding Fearless Campaign “to recognize, reward and inspire unsung community innovators with bold solutions.

As part of its Be Fearless Initiative, the foundation, in partnership with Microsoft and REI, is looking for the unsung individuals in communities across the country that have a successful track record of tackling social challenges because their approach is bold, uncommon, experimental and unconventional.

$650,000 in grants, software and technology prizes and outdoor adventures will be awarded to these fearless change makers.

After an open nomination process, a “Fearless Academy” of judges will award the top 10 submissions $10,000 grants and the next 10, $1,000 grants. All projects will receive a $25,000 software grant from Microsoft and a $100 REI gift card. The public will then have the opportunity to vote on their favorite fearless projects to determine which ones will receive an additional $10,000 grant, an REI Adventure Trip to Bryce Canyon and more.
