Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year continually (or US$100 million total once, if a onetime effort). Sources should allow the provision of grant funding as ECW is committed to providing equal and free education.

    GOAL AND DELIVERABLE

    The goal of the Challenge is to surface new and actionable ideas for large scale resource mobilization efforts with a real potential for implementation. Deliverable of the Challenge will be a unique idea and a business plan for implementation.

    THE PRIZE

    ECW will award up to three prizes of up to US$25,000 to those who can offer the best, most innovative and credible idea and a business plan for resource mobilization. In addition to the cash prize, ECW may consider supporting the implementation of winning proposals with seed funding.

    TIMELINE

    • Learn more during a webinar in July, 2018
    • Submit your idea by July 31, midnight in New York.
    • Present your idea to our Grand Jury, potentially in person, at the margins of the UN General Assembly in the

    4. New sources of finance: ECW is seeking to identify and tap non-traditional sources of financing beyond bilateral donor contributions and mainstream philanthropy. Proposed ideas should not compete with or crowd out existing funding for education in emergencies.
    5. ECW mission and humanitarian principles: Resources mobilized should not conflict with the ECW vision to create a world where all children and youth affected by crisis can learn free of cost, in safety and without fear in order to grow and reach the full potential.
