AsylumConnect Named to Unfunded List

AsylumConnect Named to the Fall 2018 Unfunded List

AsylumConnect has been named to the Fall 2018 Unfunded List. The Unfunded List is a nonprofit devoted to connecting "unfunded" proposals (defined as organizations with less than a $5 million annual operating budget) with funders. Twice a year, the Unfunded List team publishes a list, in which they feature the top proposals which deserve more funding. 

We received our largest pool of proposals over the summer of 2018 and our committee of expert evaluators reviewed them diligently this past fall. Our review culminated with the first ever Evaluator Summit at George Washington University. The Summit gave us the opportunity to connect some of our applicants directly with reviewers as well as to build both fundraising and evaluation skills.

The 30+ proposals that we reviewed were written by folks working all over the globe and our applicants are, more or less, trying to solve every major social problem with new and innovative solutions. We reviewed proposals for programs and solutions for recidivism, for fossil fuel dependency, for education curriculum in Ghana, yoga programs, interfaith dialogue programs, programs dealing with all aspects of health and programs covering various elements of systemic problems like global migration and homelessness. All of the proposals we received this round were strong and we are looking forward to continuing to support every applicant. We have chosen three of the proposals from this most recent review round that we feel are worth highlighting at this time.
— Dave Moss, Founder of the Unfunded List

In addition to AsylumConnect, National Medical Fellowships and Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation were named to the Fall 2018 Unfunded List.

AsylumConnect is thrilled to be named to this list at such a pivotal moment in the United States. LGBTQ asylum seekers deserve safety. With more funding and resources, AsylumConnect can ensure that there is never a time when someone does not know where it is safe to go for help due to their LGBTQ identity or immigration status.
