GAMECHANGERS Sports Micro-Venture FundArchitecture for Humanity has been partnering with Nike Inc. to fund a series of innovative sports facilities for at risk groups around the world. Architects, youth leaders and grassroots community groups came together to collaborate on design, develop and build real centers of change. They learned an important lesson: don't make local groups jump through hoops to get support - ask what they want, how much they need and partner them with a team of committed and passionate building professionals to help realize their goals.
Today, they're announcing the GAMECHANGERS Sports Micro-Venture Fund. For the next 6 weeks, they're asking for proposals for the final round of funding to support the construction of sports facilities offering programs that tackle social issues in the community. This Request for Proposal (RFP) process will award up to $500,000 in funds and is directed toward micro-interventions with a construction time line of 6 to 9 months. The majority of these grants will be $25,000 for building or upgrading facilities and completing existing projects.
The breakdown of available funds is as follows:
* Africa - 2 x $25,000
* The Americas - 2 x $25,000
* Asia - 2 x $25,000
* Europe - 2 x $25,000
* Oceania - 2 x $25,000
plus up to $250,000 in additional funding. Here's the link to apply.
