Through these open, fair and transparent competitions, the Foundation can deploy a portion of its philanthropic resources to generate innovative solutions to our state’s challenges.
The first challenge offered was the Water Consciousness Challenge, awarding $100,000 to Beyond the Mirage. The second challenge was the Water Innovation Challenge, awarding $250,000 to Arizona Pure Brew Water Challenge. The third challenge was the Water Public Art Challenge, awarding $50,000 to five collaborative teams to build temporary public art projects.
