FOUNDER OF THE ELEVATE PRIZE FOUNDATION
GET LOUD FOR PERIOD POVERTY
Nobody should miss out on life because of their period. Period.
That’s why, in honor of Women’s History Month, our March Elevate Prize GET LOUD Award is focusing on period poverty. Nominate grassroots organizations that are making an impact – whether they’re providing period products, access to sanitation, changing the conversation through education, or more.
$10,000 in unrestricted funding. Unlimited potential for change. Head to our Instagram to nominate today!
Nominations open 3/24 and close 3/27.
Since we launched the Elevate Prize GET LOUD Award last June, we have been consistently blown away by your response. It’s been an honor to learn about the over 7,000 organizations you’ve nominated (!) and to support grassroots efforts to drive change in YOUR communities.
In January, we put it to you; what topics do you want to see highlighted in future awards? And your response was fantastic. Thank you for your thoughtful ideas – including many suggestions that inspired our Arts + Inclusivity topic this month. We’ll continue to use these ideas for future Elevate Prize GET LOUD Awards!
So get thinking, get inspired, and get over to Instagram to tell us all about organizations that could turn $10,000 into impact!
Who can nominate?
ANYONE can make a nomination for this award unless you work for The Elevate Prize Foundation (we think that would be a little too insider-y). Nominate an organization whose work you believe in, or nominate your OWN organization!
How are winners chosen?
Organizations can be nominated infinite times, but that won’t impact judging. Winners will be chosen by the Elevate team regardless of number of nominations, based on their mission, budget, and impact.
