Fund Your Great Idea!

The Case Foundation has announced their new program, the "Make It Your Own Awards."

Do you want to make a difference in your community? We're looking for inspired individuals and passionate teams who are connecting people to discuss what matters, find smart solutions, and take action. And we're awarding grants up to $35,000 to help make it happen. If you're ready to work with others to achieve lasting change, we want to hear from you.
