HOW DOES IT WORK? Inspired by the media industry’s Upfronts, where companies compete for ad dollars by letting advertisers bid on commercial airtime, the WORLDZ GoodFronts™ is an “Action Auction” where social good organizations compete for the time, talent, and platforms of business leaders from across 70 different industries. Applications for the WORLDZ GoodFronts™ are open from May 21 through June 28, 2019. The selected organizations will be notified shortly thereafter and asked to submit their presentation materials to the WORLDZ team by mid-August. The official WORLDZ GoodFronts™ presentations will be held at WORLDZ 2019 on September 11th in Long Beach, CA. TELL ME MORE․․․ Over 300 senior leaders from culture-shaping industries will be in attendance for the presentations. They will have an opportunity to ask questions, offer live feedback and ideas, and make commitments within their sphere of access and expertise -- both in person and via the WORLDZ app. Last year, media personality SuChin Pak introduced presentations by the Gun Safety Alliance, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Love Has No Labels and The World Food Programme. As a result, the WORLDZ Community committed resources and monetary investments valued at over 10 million dollars in just under 90 minutes. THEN WHAT? Following the WORLDZ GoodFronts™, WORLDZ will work with featured organizations to process all commitments, codify action steps and measure impact. Key Dates:May 21 - June 28: Application Season Open!
