The Hope Incubator Application

We're looking for people who want to change the world! The Hope Incubator is inspired by President Obama's call to service, as reflected in the diverse stories in the book West Wingers. If you have an idea or initiative that's harnessing the power of grassroots organizing, empowering the next generation, putting tools into the hands of people changing their community or anything that encompasses sparking hope and change – we want to help take your idea to the next level.

Applications for the first round of funding are open now and will be reviewed by a panel of West Wingers authors on a rolling basis. Civic Nation will extend invitations to finalists to become inaugural incubator members. Members will receive seed funding, access to operations infrastructure through Civic Nation, support from the Creative alliance, and mentoring from the West Wingers network.

To apply, complete this interest form and we'll reach out to you if your idea is being considered as a finalist for membership in the incubator!
