Do you have an idea for bolstering economic mobility through nonprofit technology? Do you need professional support to help turn your idea into reality? Tap into innovative, pro bono technology and process improvement consulting with the Mission Possible Award Program.
When the Leading on Opportunity Task Force study ranked Charlotte last out of 50 major cities for the ability to escape poverty, we created this program to drive economic mobility. We now also bring the program to The Triangle area, which was ranked only slightly higher, at 48 out of 50.
If your nonprofit meets the eligibility criteria (see FAQs below), you are welcome to participate*. There is no application process. Simply fill out the registration form to become a participant.
*Please note: Participation in each program is limited to twenty nonprofits.
