Applications are open for Racial Equity 2030, which is a call for bold solutions to drive an equitable future for children, their families and communities.

This challenge seeks ideas from anywhere in the world and will scale them over the next decade to transform the systems and institutions that uphold inequity.

Solutions may tackle the social, economic, political or institutional inequities we see today.

Teams of visionaries, change agents and community leaders from every sector are invited to join.

Utilize This Offer

Racial Equity 2030 is open to teams from anywhere in the world.

Proposed ideas must embrace and reflect the values of racial equity and justice. They must be led by a team that centers on lived experience and includes communities closest to the issues as part of leadership in the project.

Given the global nature of the challenge, applications must be submitted in English.

The challenge has been intentional in the recruitment of expert reviewers to ensure representation of global perspectives and knowledge.

Also, while organizations of all types and sizes are welcome to apply, all projects must have a charitable purpose.

Up to ten Finalists will be identified and receive $1 million planning grants along with nine months of capacity-building support to further develop their project and strengthen their applications. Final Awardees will be selected from the pool of Finalists.

Finalists will receive planning grants and technical assistance, so early-to-mid-stage ideas are acceptable.

Be sure to register before Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
