The need for making big bets is more important now than ever before. Now is the time to collaborate across sectors, develop meaningful initiatives with measurable outcomes and set bold targets. Yet the question remains—how can the social sector act fearlessly in order to maximize impact?

At the Case Foundation, we believe that the greatest progress is achieved when organizations are willing to make big bets, experiment often and fail forward. Share our Strength and the Levi Strauss Foundation epitomizes this bold spirit by embracing innovation at multiple intersections to realize the greatest change. They are also the focus of the Foundation’s SXSW Be Fearless Breakout on March 17, 2015. You are invited to join the Case Foundation with special guests: Tom Nelson, President of Share Our Strength; and Daniel Lee, Executive Director and Jason McBriarty, Director, Worldwide Community Affairs of the Levi Strauss Foundation for an exciting session designed to explore how organizations can take action to Be Fearless (RSVP required).

What Can You Expect?

Share our Strength embraced a new sense of urgency to tackle hunger in the United States with the specific goal of eradicating childhood hunger in our country. Similarly, the Levi Strauss Foundation spearheaded the Pioneers in Justice initiative, which emphasized the long-term goal of measuring grant impact rather than just short-term grant administration. Each organization challenged itself to take risks, be bold and fail forward, leading them both achieve the transformative impact they set out to make. Leaders from both organizations will share their greatest lessons learned, action steps they took and insights from their experience in this exclusive break out session at SXSW.
