To celebrate our 1000th Grant, The Pollination Project announces
The Visionary Award is a $1000 seed grant for a startup social change project anywhere in the world.
And the public gets to decide who wins!
Two and a half years ago, when our co-Founder, Ariel Nessel, announced his intention to give away $1000 a day, every day for the rest of his life, people thought he was nuts. But after awarding nearly $1,000,000 in grants to exceptional social change leaders in 56 countries and counting, our impact continues to grow.
In celebration of this huge milestone, and to acknowledge the vision, courage and hard work it takes to start a social change project, we are offering the Visionary Award to our 1000th grantee.
Our team of grant advisors will select three finalists for the Visionary Award and turn the final decision over to the public! Voting for the Visionary Award will begin on our website on June 15, 2015 and the winner will be announced on July 29th.
The winner will receive a $1000 Pollination Project grant and widespread promotion in our social media network, as well as promotion through relevant media outlets. This is a great way to kickstart a project and get lots of public recognition for the importance of your work.
