Mission Possible Award Program
Mission Possible: The Economic Opportunity Award Program
We will begin accepting nonprofit participants for the 2021 program in December 2020.
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?
Watch our webinar to learn more, please note that the program overview is accurate, but the dates have changed. The program will launch in December 2020.
