When you say it's an unrestricted award, it sounds like it is unrestricted when applied to a specific project/initiative that meets the award criteria but that it cannot be used as unrestricted income for the organization as a whole. Is that right?
@Anne - No, the award is completely unrestricted and can be used in any way the winning organization sees fit
The selection committee will be made up of selected CASE staff and Advisory Council members. You can find a complete list of these people on the CASE website
Note: Your scaling strategy MAY involve growing your overall organization; however, we also believe that there are many other scaling strategies beyond organizational growth. We will be talking about scaling in future information sessions (see details on the CASE website).
Hello! Calling in from Creative Action Institute - we are HQed in Boston but have programming in Africa and Latin America. QuestionGiven how COVID-19 has dramatically changed how social impact organizations are delivering on their missions and program implementation, the 3 years of track record can be shown for projects in their pre-COVID iterations, but today, that looks different and new innovations have been made. To what extent do we need to demonstrate evidence for adaptations made?
@Louisa - We understand that COVID-19 may have had significant impact on your work. I recommend that you share your evidence of impact for your pre-COVID work and then share more about where you are in analyzing your COVID-related changes.
Will there only be a single $100,000 award?
@Anne - Yes, we will award one $100,000 (USD) prize per year for at least the next three years.
I have a question
It says that only the first 1000 applications will be considered?
Greetings everyone.My name is Sijabuliso currently in Botswana and a fundraising intern from International Development Innovation Network-SADC Consortium (IDIN-SADC Consortium)
How many applications are you anticipating?
@Neo - Yes, we will review the first 1,000 applications. T
Does this mean that applying quickly before listening to all the webinars
I have a question — Hi Robyn — we currently have a single founder/CEO, but are in the midst of converting into an employee-owned co-op (of three.) Is that something we need to be mindful of as far as the due diligence phase of the application process?
@Danielle- This is our pilot year, so we're looking forward to learning more.
A question from CARE Social Ventures - given that you are looking for enterprises that have already demonstrated impact, is there a level of existing scale that you would consider TOO large to be a good fit?
Does the age of the organization matter, coming from an organization that is about 30 years old?
Ok that sounds good! Thank you!
Will you communicate out if the number of applications starts to get close as far as applicants? I’d like to attend all the sessions to ensure we have a strong application but I don’t want to miss out if you get early applicants.
@Dani - We understand that organizational governing structure may change. We'll want to understand your structure process and strategy.
@Robyn - gotcha. Thanks!
@Naita - We care most of about having at least 3 years of impact, more than we do age of organization.
Will there be visibility opportunities for finalists or semi-finalists as well?
Is there any preference for globally vs. US focused organizations?
@Danielle - Yes, will communicate if we are getting close to our max of 1000 applications. Keep an eye on the CASE website and social media channels.
Marta Noval Felgueroso
I have the same question as @Danielle
I am interested in the answer to the question from Steer about early application vs applications after the webinairs are complete?
@Danielle - We are considering what additional visibility we may be able to provide to semi-finalists. It's helpful to hear that that may be of interest.
Are organizations not US-based elegible for this prize?
We are an internal accelerator for CARE with multiple social ventures - is it possible for one organization to submit multiple applications, or should they submit separately?
Thank you very much! 😊
@Stephanie - No we do not have a preference for U.S. vs Global orgs vs. orgs located in other non-US countries.
@Meg - We recommend that an organization only submit one application.
Is there a preference for applicants who have engaged with the CASE Smart Impact Capital program?
@Meg - organizations should submit separately
Yes, that answers - thank you!
@Danielle - No, there is not a preference for applicants who have engaged formally with CASE Smart Impact Capital
Thank you! This has been helpful.
