Power Launch is a philanthropy innovation lab, accelerator, and charitable giving fund. We leverage competition and immersive learning opportunities to advance leadership, organizational development, and philanthropy - three critical elements to affecting sustained social impact. Our programs aim to optimize the capabilities of philanthropists, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders to accelerate social change.
Charity Warriors Challenge is a 10-week fundraising competition and boot camp for women who are passionate ambassadors of local nonprofits. More than a dozen MA-based nonprofits have collectively raised over $800,000 through the program.
We help chief executives, board members and rising leaders to enhance their knowledge and know-how, to more effectively serve their organizations. Participants learn from each other and a powerful network of expert advisors while competing for a grand prize.
Each week of the challenge focuses on a different area of fund development, in which participants hone their skills, test new ideas, and mobilize their teams to raise funds and awareness.
In 2016, Power Launch convened social entrepreneurs in its first program geared toward early-stage ventures.
Five finalists were selected from the founding cohort to share their visionary ideas for social change at Pitch In. The social impact competition awarded over $150,000 to help scale and sustain these high-impact nonprofits.

The Give Together Fund is a philanthropic initiative to leverage the knowledge, resources, and connection of a giving community - to outsize the impact of personal giving.
Friends and colleagues form teams and give together to support exceptional nonprofits. Members contribute a minimal annual gift of $1,000 ($500 for nonprofit staff & emerging philanthropists). The giving community then awards funds through the Charity Warriors Challenge, other competitions, and direct grants to nonprofits in Power Launch's portfolio.
