A Mission Possible best

Congratulations to our 2018 Mission Possible winner - Charlotte Bilingual Preschool!

The Award

The Mission Possible Award gives local nonprofits the ability to better achieve their missions while increasing economic opportunity in Charlotte (which ranks last out of 50 major cities for ability to escape poverty). 

Sponsored by Accenture, the award includes $50,000 in Accenture consulting services, plus a $10,000 cash grant. The award is presented to the nonprofit that submits a proposal for a technology project that best supports the economic opportunity theme.

  • Hold current 501(c)3 nonprofit designation
  • Employ at least one full-time paid staff member
  • Be located in the Charlotte-Metro area
  • Mission cannot be primarily engaged in promoting religious activity or political campaign activity

Additionally, each organization must complete an Art of the Possible Workshop (tailored consulting session provided at no cost). 

For a project to be considered, it must be an innovative and technology-based idea and align with at least one of the five award themes:

  • Segregation
