THE FUNDS, COMMUNITY, & SUPPORT TO BRING YOUR IDEA TO LIFE
YOUR ORGANIZATION WILL RECEIVE:
UP TO $100K IN
Save the Children will offer up to 100k in funding to test and pilot your idea. These funds can be used for anything needed to make it a reality— from personnel and equipment to food and mileage. We’ll ask for a best estimate of how you’ll be using the funding. However, in the Incubation Workshop there will be space to refine that estimate. There is also potential for you to continue receiving support from Save the Children beyond year one.
This is a three-day, in-person Innovation Workshop hosted by Save the Children in partnership with design nonprofit IDEO.org and Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty (BCHP). During this workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to meet your fellow grantee peers and learn, share, and shape your ideas together. Throughout these dynamic three days, you’ll get exposed to a variety of methods, tools, and creative approaches that can be used to evolve and test your boldest idea alongside your community. You will also receive guidance on creating a logic model, implementating, and evaluating plans for your project. A travel and training stipend associated with this workshop will be provided by Save the Children.
As a grantee, you will receive support and technical assistance from Save the Children and BCHP (an evaluation partner) on a regular basis through virtual meetings, check-in calls, and brainstorm sessions. During these touchpoints, we will as a team think through the implementation of your idea and how to set you up for success. Throughout the year, you will gain tools to track progress and solve challenges alongside your community and cohort peers. Our goal is to equip you with the resources to successfully launch your program/idea during the 12-month period.
COMMUNITY OF PEERS
Grantees will be invited into community with one another, facilitated in part by Save the Children. The cohort will have the opportunity to co-design the frequency, platform (video, in-person, email,etc), and content of group touchpoints, and Save the Children staff will be available to catalyze one-on-one connections between cohort members. Cohort members will have the opportunity to share and receive feedback, thus committing to sharing learnings and celebrating small wins with one another along the way.
