Economic Inequality Initiative
This funding supports early-stage solutions addressing economic inequality in the United States. We’re elevating solutions that create transformational opportunities for people to increase wealth in the near term while building towards a long-term vision to address the root causes themselves. That’s why we’re launching a six-month initiative this spring to support eight very early-stage social entrepreneurs, movement builders, and nonprofit innovators who are tackling wealth inequality in the U.S. From universal basic income pilots to rent-to-own home programs, we’re seeking radical ideas with proof of concept and the potential to create a profound impact. Selected participants will receive $25k in unrestricted funding, access to subject-matter experts, mental health resources, introductions to potential funders in our network, and other personalized support.
Social Impact Focus
- Economic inequality poses the greatest threat to America’s future over the next 25 years. At Uncharted, we believe that if we can create an economy that serves people (and not the other way around), we’ll all be better off.
