New Features In 2015!

The Celgene Patient Advocacy team is pleased to announce several exciting new features added to the 2015 Innovation Impact award program:

 Changes to Grant Submissions/Award Amounts

Thanks to feedback from the Celgene Advocacy Council and to encourage greater breadth and variety in this year’s applications, participants may select the level of grant they are applying for: $25,000, $50,000, $75,000 and $100,000. Grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded, with the total of the 2015 program not to exceed $300,000.

Enhanced Opportunities for Top Ten Finalists

Top Ten finalists will have the opportunity to refine their submissions before they go to the external panel of judges, following a customized consultation with Measurement Coach Beth Kanter, (author of Measuring the Networked Nonprofit). Beth will assess the organization’s methods for demonstrating impact and tracking progress and offer suggestions to enhance both the qualitative and quantitative metrics.

Top Ten finalists will also be asked to submit a one-page detailed budget with their refined submission.
