FOUNDER OF THE ELEVATE PRIZE FOUNDATION
We want to hear from you
Tell us what you GET LOUD for
Since we launched the Elevate Prize GET LOUD Award last June, we have been consistently blown away by the way by your response. We’ve gotten more than 7,000 unique nominations and heartfelt comments about organizations that are making a difference in YOUR communities.
This month we want to bring you into the process even earlier. Tell us what TOPICS you’d like us to highlight for future GET LOUD Awards. From representation and gender equality to rescuing animals or xxx no cause is too big or too small.
For the Holiday Season, four organizations each received a $2,500 donation from The Elevate Prize Foundation to continue the important work of alleviating hardship in their communities.
So get thinking, get inspired, and get over to Instagram to tell us all about organizations that could turn $10,000 into impact!
Who can nominate?
ANYONE can make a nomination for this award unless you work for The Elevate Prize Foundation (we think that would be a little too insider-y). Nominate an organization whose work you believe in, or nominate your OWN organization!
How are winners chosen?
Organizations can be nominated infinite times, but that won’t impact judging. Winners will be chosen by the Elevate team regardless of number of nominations, based on their mission, budget, and impact.
