Mission Possible Award
Mission Possible: The Economic Opportunity Award
Increase economic mobility in Charlotte with Mission Possible: The Economic Opportunity Award for nonprofits, sponsored by Accenture.
Charlotte ranks last out of 50 major cities for the ability to escape poverty. Your nonprofit supports economic opportunity and works to improve that ranking every day. And with the right technology, you could be unstoppable.
What if you could uncover ways to more efficiently and effectively achieve your mission by tapping into innovative, pro bono consulting? And then, what if you were given the funding and support to make it happen?
