Do you have a large initiative or concept with the potential to bring about significant, long-lasting change?
The Catalyst Fund backs innovative concepts or initiatives that challenge the current quo and force us to reframe problems and their solutions. These large concepts have a great chance of affecting an entire neighborhood, city, or nation. They frequently make use of already-existing infrastructure, expand on public and private partnerships, and enhance what is already in place. Big ideas challenge the status quo and push the envelope.
Will your ideas spur others to action and promote fresh thinking in the industry?
The Catalyst Fund assists people with bold change-related goals. Catalyst award recipients have a vision for how to get there and what has to be done. They seek out major, long-term effect. They are able to explain why they want to improve the world and how they intend to do it. Others are motivated by and given hope for a brighter future by their vision.
