The Unfunded List New
The Unfunded List
The Spring 2018 pool of unfunded grant proposals and other materials that we received was the strongest yet. And we delivered more feedback than ever before. After speaking with each organization and delivering feedback from hundreds of experts we’ve chosen five organizations to whose proposals merit highlighting. Our founder and board choose proposals to highlight each round based on a variety of factors mostly merit and issue area importance.
We hope you’ll enjoy reading about the work of the organizations below. Each have their own unique response to a solveable social problem. These proposals deserve to be funded. Enjoy.
Through safe spaces for adolescent girls, OASIS is sparking a gender revolution in the region. OASIS is a Niger-based NGO, supported by 501(c)3 nonprofit Venture Strategies for Health and Development and the University of California Berkeley. The program has already been successful in Nigeria and is expanding into neighboring Niger. This proposal has the added advantage of a generous donor matching contributions up to $250,000.
Translators without Borders provides crucial translation services where they are needed most. Language barriers shouldn’t get in the way of social impact. TWB works to close the language gap for humanitarians around the globe.
Respectability is an organization that supports the differently abled by fighting stigma, educating leaders and advancing opportunities for people with disabilities. We were particularly impressed by their efforts to encourage institutional grant-makers to consider how their grantees include those with disabilities.
