Due October 31st, 2017 - In honor of Upstanders Season 2, the Starbucks Foundation is launching the “Upstanders Challenge” to celebrate charities that are making a difference in their communities. The Foundation will award twenty-five $25,000 grants to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the US.

Create a short video that explains what makes your favorite charity an “Upstander.” Be sure to say the name of the charity you are nominating and how it creates positive change in your community. Videos do not need to be highly produced – shooting them on your phone is great. But be creative! Upload your video to the Indi challenge page. Be sure to follow the instructions during the upload process to properly select your charity. You will receive an email from Indi when your video has been approved for posting, which could take up to 24 hours.

Start generating “Buzz” across social media and tell your followers you’ve entered your favorite charity in a contest. A panel of judges will select 25 winning charities to receive a $25,000 grant out of the top 40 Buzz-getting charities. Judging will be based on the following criteria: 40% based on the inspiration of the organization's story, 40% based on the community impact of the organization, and 20% based on the creativity of videos submitted for each organization.

Entries should be 2 minutes or less.
