The Booz Allen Foundation has established an Innovation Fund to help nonprofits, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, innovators at colleges and universities, and startups and small businesses harness the power of data, technology, and diverse intellectual capital to improve COVID-19 relief efforts and make a difference.

The goal of the fund is to surface the best solutions for addressing the social issues created by COVID-19 and empower the people and organizations behind those solutions to drive their development and implementation.

Through the Innovation Fund, the Foundation is specifically targeting solutions and projects that will build lasting community resilience through protecting vulnerable populations and frontline workers or providing for the safe return to work.

If you have an idea for a solution or are involved with a project that’s already making a difference, apply for an Innovation Grant today and partner with us to make change that counts.

Eligible small for-profit businesses and individuals/teams may submit funding requests for microgrants of up to $10,000.

Eligible nonprofit organizations (including, but not limited, to nonprofit universities and nonprofit organizations affiliated with universities) may submit funding requests for grants up to $100,000.

The final decision on funding is at the sole and exclusive discretion of the Foundation and its Board of Directors.

2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and attests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your proposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6. Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
