About The BridgeBuilder Program

BridgeBuilder invests in the building and repairing of unique bridges between people, organizations, issues, and beliefs to promote meaningful engagement, and sustainable, community-led change.

We believe that global challenges are complex and interwoven, and cannot be solved in isolation. Whether working to advance peace, ensure prosperity, or protect our planet, there is a need to design and build approaches that incorporate multiple perspectives, keeping pace with the speed at which the global community is moving and evolving. Therefore, building and maintaining connections between people and issue areas is essential. Throughout the innovation Challenges, we refer to this as ‘bridging’ work."
