Changemaker Challenge 2019 — which launched July 23 and runs through Sept. 16 — will dole out double the money and name four winners instead of three in November. This year’s grants will range from $10,000 to $25,000.
“There is innovation happening in the social sector and these fantastic ideas prove that,” said Nikki Highsmith Vernick, president and CEO of the Horizon Foundation, a Columbia-based health and wellness philanthropy.
“The previous winners have made great progress,” she said. “But we have a community of changemakers in Howard County, and we’ll be looking for more fresh ideas from fresh faces.”
