Organizer

UpPrize: BNY Mellon Social Innovation Challenge

Established in 2014, UpPrize: BNY Mellon Social Innovation Challenge invests in great ideas and solutions that can enable nonprofits to be more efficient, effective and/or improve the quality of life of vulnerable populations in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

There have been two competitive rounds to date: 2015 and 2017. Over $1.5 million dollars in grants have been awarded. Last year we received over 200 entries from individuals and teams in different stages of development. Because of the volume and wide array of interested applicants we will be hosting two competitions this year.
