  • Team diversity
  • Service of marginalized people, communities, and geographies, including North Carolina’s media deserts, low-wealth communities, communities of color, rural communities, Indigenous communities, and communities disconnected by the digital divide, language, and literacy
  • Little-d democratic goals, including free and fair elections, community connection, and topics like public health, mutual aid, and public accountability
  • Efforts to build on existing organizational strengths by expanding access to the work beyond current audiences
  • Diversifying and earning revenue for your organization (only applicable for  501c3 public charity applicant organizations)
  • Outcomes that will move more than one organization forward
