Futures Accelerator: Social Impact
The Gold Futures Challenges democratizes philanthropy by letting the public vote on how $500,000 should be distributed to 10 non-profit organizations serving the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
How It Works
The Gold Futures Challenge awards ten prizes ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 to organizations for projects that ensure API communities are Seen, Heard, Empowered, and United. The prize amounts are determined by public vote from a pool of ten finalists chosen by a slate of social justice leaders on our selection committee.
Awardees will receive:
- Cash prize ranging from $25,000 to $100,000
- On-going membership as a Gold House Future, including networking opportunities with other Futures across industry
