Since its launch in 2015, the UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge has allocated more than $2.5 million in investments, grants, and technical assistance. The 2023 cycle will continue the mission of supporting impactful technology that improves nonprofit service delivery and the lives and experiences of people in the region.
