Sun Life Foundation Partners with The Spark Project To Crowd Source 2018 Financial Literacy Projects


Sun Life Foundation is celebrating 10 years of building a brighter world and to continue its advocacy has partnered with The Spark Project, the leading crowdfunding platform and community in the Philippines, to search for, fund and accelerate 10 financial literacy initiatives for 2018. This collaboration will crowd source creative and innovative solutions from social innovators and change makers, helping them deepen their impact with the communities they serve.

This project is called the Brighter World Builder Challenge and was launched during Sun Life Foundation’s 10th year anniversary celebration last November.

“We’re giving a shout out to people who have ideas on projects focused on financial literacy, as it’s our company’s core competency,” said Alex Narciso, President of Sun Life of Canada (Philippines) and Sun Life Foundation “It’s our way of communicating, too, that we are entering the digital age, modernizing the foundation.”

Applications for the Brighter World Builder Challenge are open to all mission-driven groups, social enterprises, and nonprofit organizations creating positive change in their communities. “We’re very excited to work with Sun Life Foundation on this, and we’re looking forward to crowd source new financial literacy projects for the foundation,” said Patch Dulay, Founder and CEO of The Spark Project.

Applicants have a chance of receiving grant funding worth P100,000 from Sun Life Foundation, crowdfunding support from The Spark Project, and a chance to develop their initiatives in a Social Impact Bootcamp by The Spark Project.

Deadline for application is until January 31, 2018.
