How do you help a 70-year-old humanitarian organization emphasize its current relevance and rally its global community?

Launch a totally new concept in humanitarian aid–Scale X Design–a competitive program designed to close the gap between innovation and impact in fighting poverty and social injustice. Then showcase the journey to identify the winners.

The first event, held in Atlanta, identified five finalists from among 15 semifinalists. The Final Five competition took place at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City, where three winners each received a $150,000 grant to accelerate the impact of vital programs in their home countries and beyond.
