On February 27th 2010 a magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck Chile. We reached out to our Chilean partners to see if we could help.
In May, in partnership with Nike Inc., we hosted an request for proposals (RFP) to fund community building projects from NGOs and/or local groups that are partnered with architectural professionals. The aim of the selected project should be to improve lives by focusing on community issues and creating social change through sports.
After all 47 entries were reviewed by partners in Chile and United States, we have selected ten RFPs for a final round process. We will be doing due diligence and interviewing project partners over the next two weeks. The selected project will be announced on July 11th.
In alphabetical order, the finalists are;
