JUMP - Joining Up to Minimize Poverty

JUMP grants support partner projects that aim to spread awareness of how poverty can be reduced by increasing economic freedom. Ideas for locally focused educational and awareness campaigns that demonstrate the power of free markets to unleash prosperity and reduce poverty are particularly encouraged. Projects that identify new audiences to spread this message outside of those who share a "liberty vocabulary" are a priority for this opportunity.

Strong candidates for this grant will execute a compelling multimedia strategy as a key element of their project, potentially including video production, photojournalism, and/or targeted media placements. They will also exhibit a strong respect for the dignity and autonomy of poor people as a cornerstone of development strategies.

Please note that JUMP grants are distinct from Atlas Network’s Poverty & Freedom grants, which focus on short-term, achievable policy reform projects. As noted, the goal of JUMP grants is to support awareness campaigns about how poverty can be reduced by increasing economic freedom.

As part of the Dignity Unbound project, Atlas Network invites its partners to apply for the Joining Up to Minimize Poverty (JUMP) grants.

We suggest requests of roughly $15,000, though other amounts may be entertained. Both international and United States partners are eligible. Matching preferred. Atlas Network is not endowed and accepts no government funding, so its capacity to give is restricted by its own fundraising success.

We favor organizations who participate in the Atlas Network Academy and, in particular, those who have completed Think Tank Fundamentals and Think Tank Theory & Practice, which are both free online courses offered within the Academy.

Our 2021 deadlines will be February 15, May 15, August 15, and November 15.
