After a rejection, or before an official submission, fundraisers can submit proposals to the Unfunded List for an official review by our evaluation committee.

These unfunded proposals generally receive no critical feedback when they are rejected and it's hard to get professional feedback before submission. This makes it difficult to move forward. To support these entrepreneurs we have assembled a volunteer evaluation committee whose 100+ members represent a variety of fields (nonprofits, foundations, investors, and other social architects). Proposals are assigned to the evaluators best positioned to give helpful feedback as well as to those with the ability to make direct connections to funding sources and other partners.

The feedback is then collated into thorough and comprehensive feedback reports and distributed to each applicant. After the feedback is distributed, we determine the best unfunded proposals and publish them to our official list. The list is promoted heavily. We distribute it directly to our growing rolodex of philanthropists, potential partners & other supporters. We have critiqued over 60 unfunded proposals and provided hundreds of pages of feedback as well as dozens of high level introductions to funders and partners enabling our applicants to implement their solutions quickly and effectively. The current iteration of the list features the following organizations: Free the Slaves, Library for All, Open Media Foundation, Solstice Initiative, Femme International, CityDance and the Global EIR Coalition.
