What:           

As part of its Be Fearless initiative, the Case Foundation, in partnership with Microsoft and REI, is looking for the unsung individuals in communities across the country that have a successful track record of tackling social challenges because their approach is bold, uncommon, experimental and unconventional. The Case Foundation is Finding Fearless.

$650,000 in grants, software and technology prizes and outdoor adventures will be awarded to these fearless change makers.

After an open nomination process, a “Fearless Academy” of judges will award the top 10 submissions $10,000 grants and the next 10, $1,000 grants. All projects will receive a $25,000 software grant from Microsoft and a $100 REI gift card. The public will then have the opportunity to vote on their favorite fearless projects to determine which ones will receive an additional $10,000 grant, an REI Adventure Trip to Bryce Canyon and more.

Who:

The Case Foundation and their presenting partners, Microsoft and REI, are celebrating unsung social innovators that have a successful track record of tackling social challenges because their approach is bold, experimental, unconventional and fearless.
