GHR Foundation is partnering with OpenIDEO to conduct our first open challenge. The deadline to apply is April 14, 2017.
The BridgeBuilder Challenge leverages the universal call from Pope Francis to ‘build bridges’ addressing the pressing and emergent concerns of our time in the areas of peace, prosperity and planet.
With this program, GHR—in collaboration with OpenIDEO, an open innovation platform—will seek out and invest in organizations developing solutions for the global good. Stemming from our founders’ values, the challenge seeks to support new and innovative projects that respond to needs in two or more of these areas, in the United States and around the world. The top ideas selected from the challenge will receive a total of $1 million in funding, in addition to support provided by our experts. All participants will benefit from the platform's collaborative improvement process and opportunities for connection to new partners and potential funders.
