Yesterday, Creative Commons launched The Catalyst Campaign in order to fund their Catalyst Grants program.
Catalyst Grants enable organizations or individuals like you to make use of the power of Creative Commons and encourage the the use of CC tools, licenses, technologies, and help communities be creative and self-sustainable. The grants are between $1,000–$10,000.
Please read the news release below for more information. You can also visit the grant page for more information.
The Catalyst Campaign: Donate Now to Help Fund CC’s Catalyst Grants
We’re thrilled today to announce the launch of the Catalyst Campaign – from now through June 30, Creative Commons is raising money to fund our recently-launched Catalyst Grants program.
Catalyst Grants will make it possible for individuals and organizations to harness the power of Creative Commons. A grant might enable a group in a developing country to research how Open Educational Resources can positively impact its community. Another could support a study of entrepreneurs using Creative Commons licenses to create a new class of socially responsible businesses. Anyone may apply for a Catalyst Grant, which ranges from $1,000-$10,000.
But we can't do it without your help. Our goal is to raise $100,000 from CC supporters like you to fund the grants that will make all this possible. Donate today to help spread our mission of openness and innovation across all cultural and national boundaries.
Thanks to the Milan Chamber of Commerce which has generously donated EUR 10,000 to jumpstart the effort!
