100&Change is a MacArthur Foundation competition for a $100 million grant to fund a single proposal that will make measurable progress toward solving a significant problem. 100&Change will select a bold proposal that promises real progress toward solving a critical problem of our time. And it will award a $100 million grant to help make that solution a reality. Proposals focused on any critical issue are welcome.
- No single field or problem area is designated; proposals from any sector are encouraged.
- Proposals should articulate both the problem and the proposed solution, and must have a charitable purpose.
- Competitive proposals will be meaningful, verifiable, durable, and feasible.
The competition opened on June 2, 2016, and registration closes on September 2, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. Central. Applications will be accepted through 11:00 a.m. Central on Monday, October 3, 2016. Semi-Finalists will be announced in December 2016 and Finalists in the Summer of 2017. A group of Finalists will present their solutions during a live event in the fall of 2017. Selection of the final award recipient rests with MacArthur’s Board of Directors. Send email of intent to: email@example.com
