“ULTIMATELY, THE GOAL IS TO AWAKEN THE HERO IN ALL OF US, AND IGNITE A CHAIN REACTION OF GIVING AND GOODNESS ON A GLOBAL SCALE.”

-JOSEPH DEITCH
FOUNDER OF THE ELEVATE PRIZE FOUNDATION

This month’s themes are PRIDE and PUBLIC SAFETY

While our intention was to launch The Elevate GET LOUD Award for Pride Month with energy and excitement, the tragedies of recent weeks caused us to take a step back. This award is meant to acknowledge organizations making change in their communities, and part of that is acknowledging that circumstances change, and we need to be ready to act.

So, this month only, we’ll be giving away $20,000: $10,000 to an organization supporting the LGBTQ+ community for PRIDE, and $10,000 to an organization mobilizing on the ground level to end gun violence for PUBLIC SAFETY.

In a year that’s seen a wave of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation being introduced around the country, and a rise in hate crimes against the community, we’re proud to support organizations driving change. And given the horrific events of the last few weeks (and, if we’re honest, everyday in the U.S.), we are honored to invest in leaders on the ground advocating for reform.

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 or nominations, based on their mission, budget, and impact.
