Our Funding Partners

ChangeX is a new way to invest in communities and run engaging community programs. We partner with corporations, foundations and governments to create measurable impact on issues and regions they care about.


“Working with ChangeX was glorious, wonderful, and exciting. There was fantastic energy as the starters flowed in and the ideas came to life. Everyone on our team who was involved loved it.”

Jason Daum
Blue Cross Blue Shield, U.S.

“As we — funders and grantmakers — look for ways to build stronger, more vibrant communities, we should explore what other countries are doing well. Platforms like ChangeX are a great place to start.”

Karabi B. Acharya
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, U.S.

“For The Foundation, it was an interesting example of how new innovative programmes can be rolled out and how impact can be achieved at local level in a very targeted way.”
