Project 25 is an annual, collaborative, community service campaign based in San Diego CA. Over the past five years Proj25 has helped inspire and fund the ideas of thousands of students to creatively raise tens of thousands of dollars to make an impact in their schools, communities, city, and the world.
We have been blown away by the incredible creativity, innovation, and passion by students doing projects ranging from; helping local homeless, financially assisting classmates battling cancer, and beach clean ups, to sending care packages to military overseas, sponsoring children in poverty, and funding clean water projects internationally.
Since 2009 the Proj25 campaign has donated over 75,000 hours of community service towards projects around the globe.
Each spring we open the campaign up to the first 50 schools/clubs to register online at proj25.org. We then hand out $100 mini-grants and ask each school/club to brainstorm, plan, and execute their project within an eight week timeframe, and then make a 90 second film documenting their work.
Projects are then judged by: creativity and innovation, breadth and depth of impact, sustainability, people involved, and money raised. Each year we wrap up the Proj25 campaign by hosting a huge awards show called the Campus Awards that features celebrities, musical artists, and pro-athletes along with red carpet photos, give-aways, and trophies for the top 3 projects.
