Twice a year we review the credibility, impact, vision, and commitment of our member organizations to grow with the Lightup Impact network. Founders who successfully pass this selection process, can earn our Lightup Impact Impact Badge, issued together with a certificate.


As impact members of our community, the founders are granted exclusive access to apply to our additional projects (e.g. calls for partnerships or trainings) and can showcase their organization’s credibility and collaboration with the Lightup Impact Community to external partners.


Applications for the second half of the year are open. Contact our team for more information.
