Announcement of Spring 2014 Grantees

May 27, 2014

Storytelling has been at the forefront of our minds this year. With our Solutions Lab crew collaborating with the Santa Fe SpeakEasy, and the upcoming launch of our Indie Philanthropy Initiative, we’re noticing that storytelling connects the dots between what challenges us, what motivates us, and what pushes great ideas out into the world.

One of the greatest assets of Kindle has always been the collection of field stories from our collaborators in our partner community. Day in and day out, we have the privilege of hearing the riveting plots of partner projects; their challenges, inspirations, and the remarkable players that make all their work possible. Sharing these stories with you is all done in the spirit of sparking the extraordinary change we all want to see in the world.

This spring, we have another remarkable roster of torchbearers to introduce. Ranging from the artistically adventurous to the scientifically steadfast—our growing community is filled with endlessly motivating organizations and individuals. To achieve their formidable goals, our partners are breaking boundaries in ways that are at once surprising, thought-provoking, and essential, paving the way for thinking and doing outside the box.

We hope you’ll celebrate the incredible work of these groups with us by taking a moment to learn more about all of them below. We can’t wait to share more details of their work with you over the coming years. Don’t forget to check back on our site to see how the narratives of these groups continue to unfold.
