How to Build a Citizen Base that Supports an Organization

The five winners of the Changemakers Innovation Award were selected by a vote of this online community from among 12 finalists that emerged from a competition attracting 99 entries from 39 countries worldwide.

The winners are presenting the most innovative, compelling, and globally replicable ideas for generating the money and other resources needed to sustain an organization—from a citizen base of support. Such a citizen base can include individual citizens and citizen organizations, businesses, and members of the media. Organizations that receive support from a diverse citizen base demonstrate that they are stronger and more independent than when they rely solely on foundation and government grants. Each winner receives a $1,000 cash prize and more.
