Upcoming Social Entrepreneurship Deadline for Echoing Green

This posting is to spread word of a social entrepreneurship grant application that may be of interest to students with an idea for innovative poverty work.  I went through the process and made it to the final weekend, and though I was not funded, I have a lot of respect for Echoing Green and for how their process makes you closely consider your ideas.  A number of great organizations got their start with Echoing Green funding: the DC Employment Justice Center, College Summit, etc. 

Here is the Echoing Green announcement:


  • Do you have an incredible, new idea that could change your community, country, or world?
  • Are you an entrepreneur who won't rest until your idea has been brought to life? Or a leader who has recently started an organization to do just that?

If so, apply for an Echoing Green Fellowship. You could receive up to $90,000 in seed funding and support to launch a new organization that turns your innovative idea for social change into action.

Follow in the footsteps of the founders of Teach For America, City Year, and over 400 other social change organizations and apply online by December 3, 2007.
