For a Better City seeks to identify, encourage and expand the impact of innovative social projects that contribute to the improvement of the living conditions of the citizens of Cali, and that seek to solve a wide array of community problems by creating public value in a sustainable, participatory and replicable manner.

The other organizations that make this award possible with their support and generous contributions  (both in cash and kind) are: Fundación Carvajal, Fundación Fanalca, Fundación WWB, Fundación Club Campestre of Cali, the Freinet School, the 90 Minutes News Channel, the daily Cali newspaper, El País, Fundación Corona, Fundación Plan, the Uniminuto University Corporation, and the Fundación Bolívar Davivienda.

Since its inception in the city of Cali, 885 social initiatives have been identified and over COP$200,000,000 pesos (US$ 65,000 dollars) of seed capital have been invested in the grant-awarded programs. This year Cali is preparing for the 10th anniversary of this worthwhile initiative.
