The Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse Challenge invites domestic violence organizations to tap into resources that can help them expand their donor base and increase funding through contests featuring funding provided by The Allstate Foundation. Up to 250 organizations will be considered Challenge Partners and will receive promotional materials, technical assistance, access to competitions for prize funding and the support of a powerful national public campaign driving donors to participate in the Challenge. Each Partner will have its own “Team Page” where it can raise funds from October 2 through October 31, 2018, through the Challenge. Each approved Challenge Partner will also receive a limited-edition purple purse designed by celebrity ambassador and tennis champion, Serena Williams, to be used for fundraising. In addition, each Partner is encouraged (but not required) to recruit “Fundraisers” – board members, community advocates, supporters, and friends – who use their personal networks to raise funds for the Partner and share messages about domestic violence and the Challenge.

Partners will be divided into three Divisions of roughly equal size based on organizational budget. To help capture and sustain donor interest and help Community Partners reach their own fundraising goals, The Allstate Foundation will sponsor contests for each Division throughout the four -week Challenge. Partners compete within their Division in a variety of weekly contests. Contests and prizes will be the same for each Division, with Partners competing only against organizations within their own Division. There are multiple ways to win a prize from The Allstate Foundation, greatly increasing the chance that a participating organization will supplement the funds raised with a prize ranging from $500 to $100,000. Partners can earn more than one prize throughout the Challenge. Full Challenge details and official rules will be shared with selected Partners.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $5,000 to $100,000.

Eligibility: Applicants must be a nonprofit organization in the United States.

Due Date: August 1, 2018

The California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) through the Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) program, is soliciting proposals for a pilot grant program. The purpose of this pilot grant program is to support non-profit organizations in their efforts to prevent or intervene in violent extremism in California. The Cal OES PYE program recognizes the whole community approach as inclusive of non-profit partners because nonprofit organizations are effective at soliciting intervention referrals and often have participation from former extremists or other "credible voices." In addition, non-profits are at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for counter-messaging and seeking intervention referrals online, as well as other traditional methods of community engagement.

This pilot program seeks to support five projects that will develop innovative and sustainable products by the end of the 18 month performance period. This funding opportunity also aims to strengthen partnerships between community organizations and local, county, and state government. All activities must have a direct nexus to the prevention or intervention of violent extremism in California, and awardees must be willing to participate in academic evaluation.

Grant Amount: Grants of $125,000 will be awarded.

Eligibility: Organizations eligible to submit applications are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit groups.

Due Date: August 3, 2018
