Engaging Communities and Partners for Change
Through Incentivized Price Challenges

Incentivized prize challenges have a long history and are proven to be effective tools to raise more awareness, leverage resources and achieve increased impact. Well-planned awards benefit not only the winners, but especially the participants, audience and the causes supported.

Awards are a great way to spread new ideas, initiate actions and create meaningful synergies between talents, resources and time toward positive impact.

Compared to more traditional grant making, awards have the potential to achieve even higher degree of public engagement and awareness by publishing exceptionally visible results. Every dollar spent may be leveraged more efficiently thanks to strong community engagement and volunteer efforts.

We focus especially on awards which help all participants to improve their lives through capacity building. For example, our Almost Famous Award supports participating non-profit organizations in analysing and increasing their marketing efforts for more awareness, while our DIY Limb Award allows to share new ideas about inexpensive 3D printed limbs for children and adults.

Since our inception, our awards have raised awareness through 1 million social media views, generated additional donations and improved live quality for thousands.

We are open to proposals for new prizes and invite ideas or sponsorship at awards@croeni.org.
