Welcome to the third annual Social Entrepreneurs Challenge. This year’s Challenge is designed to have Skoll awardees focus on fundraising for their organization’s most pressing projects.
Participants in the Challenge are recipients of the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, presented by the Skoll Foundation each year to transformative leaders who are disrupting the status quo, driving large-scale change, and are poised to make a significant impact on the world.
Dedicating their work to a range of issues to improve health, education, opportunity, transparency, and accountability in some of the poorest places on earth, these Skoll Awardees are poised to change the world and should be on the giving list of everyone one cares about the future of the world.
The 2016 Skoll Social Entrepreneurship Challenge will run from Wednesday, June 1st at 12:00pm ET through Wednesday, June 29th at 1:59:59pm ET.
The five teams that raise the most during the Challenge win grand prizes and there will be weekly Bonus Challenges where organizations can win up to another $100,000.
1st place will win $65,000 from the Skoll Foundation
2nd place - $45,000
3rd place - $20,000
4th place - $15,000
5th place - $5,000
And, the best part of the Challenge is that even if you don't win any of the grand prize money, you get to keep the money you raise during the campaign.
