Impact Challenge Canada

Opportunity

The Google.org Impact Challenge was created to fund social innovators and to engage the public in their support. In late 2016, Google.org asked Canadian nonprofits how they would use innovation to make a better world. From hundreds of ideas submitted, 10 finalists were selected. Canadians were invited to vote for the project with the greatest impact potential. Enso was engaged to develop the creative campaign to galvanize Canadians to join the shared mission and take action by voting for the ideas they felt would have the greatest impact.

Shared Mission

We aspired to tap into the individual agency in people by developing campaign creative anchored in values and impact rather than focused strictly on the ideas, the finalists, or Google. To incentivize people to bring others into the shared mission, we innovated a modular film that could be broken down and shared in pieces (individual videos, gifs, images, assets for social mastheads) to provide discrete values-aligned content that finalists, their followers, and the general public would be most likely to share. The overall creative approach depicted a world we can all build together.

Positive Impact

475,000 Votes poured in during the three week voting period; the highest voter participation % of internet population of any national Impact Challenge. During the campaign period, total views of the campaign film on the YouTube Canada channel reached 1.9M.views, visits to the channel went up by 6,750%, and subscriber count nearly doubled. There were 1,200+ posts on social media, totaling 6,000,000+ impressions. Impact Challenge winners were awarded $750K (CAD) in grant funding and the 5 remaining finalists each received $250K in grant funding from Google.org.
