The Barry & Marie Lipman Family Prize, administered by the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, recognizes and amplifies the work of organizations creating sustainable solutions to significant social and economic challenges — with an emphasis on transferability and impact of practices. This is the second year of this annual, global prize that will award $100,000 to the winner and a non-monetary award package to the other finalists that will include educational opportunities and other supports.
For more information on the Prize and to watch the video, visit the Lipman Family Prize website.
The Lipman Family Prize encourages organizations from around the globe to apply. They are looking for an organization building a track record of success that may not yet have gained significant recognition. For the winner, this prize will help bring its work to a larger audience, attract new potential donors, and provide resources that will help it scale the work or improve its organizational sustainability.
The Lipman Family Prize is targeted toward organizations addressing social and economic issues that are usually addressed by the Nonprofit/NGO/Civil Society sector. The majority of organizations considered for the award will be considered “nonprofit” organizations. However, in recognition of the variations in international law, as well as the organizational innovations occurring globally (i.e., social enterprises, for-benefit corporations, and 4th sector organizations), organizations not considered traditional nonprofits will also be considered.
