Results Innovation Lab

Join us in achieving our Moonshot Goal to dramatically improve the trajectory of the lives of 20,000 vulnerable children in America by 2024. The Results Innovation Lab creates space for new solutions to surface, and the opportunity to scale innovations that will disrupt the status quo for youth who otherwise might become another statistic. Funding for this vital, multi-year initiative makes it possible to engage faculty, utilize technical expertise, and provide scholarships for Lab participants to work toward achieving this most worthwhile Moonshot Goal. The donation you make today could make the defining difference in a child’s future.
