The Barry & Marie Lipman Family Prize at the University of Pennsylvania is an annual global prize given to three organizations that celebrate leadership and innovation in the social sector with an emphasis on impact and transferability of practices.
We encourage organizations from around the globe to apply. We look for organizations that have a proven effective service model and capacity for growth. While the organizations should be building a track record of success, they may not yet have gained significant recognition. For the winners, this Prize brings its work to a larger audience, attracts new potential donors, and provides resources that will help scale the work or improve organizational sustainability. Organizations do not have to operate outside of their home country to win the Prize.
