Changemaker of the Year Award

Causeway believes that any person, in any neighborhood, who has an idea for social change should have access to the resources and the tools they need to act on that opportunity. Through our work, we get the chance to meet tons of passionate people who are doing amazing things for our city. Most of the time, these are not the people in the spotlight. They are the people rolling up their sleeves, working tirelessly in their neighborhoods and communities to create change.

We want you to meet five people who knocked our socks off this year. Each of these people deserves recognition and support, and we couldn’t possibly choose a favorite. We’re going back to our crowdfunding roots, and asking you, the crowd, to help us decide who should be our first annual Changemaker of the Year. Get to know the nominees, then vote for your favorite with a small donation. (Really, no donation is too small!) The winner will be recognized at SPARK, our annual party to celebrate Chattanooga’s changemakers, on April 21st. Winner takes all; Whoever gets the most votes will get the entire pot of money raised through the voting process to help them further their project.
