The Elevate Prize is our annual award recognizing 10 social impact leaders who are driving progress around the world. We partner with winners for two years, granting each a minimum of $300,000 in unrestricted funding, and provide tailored support services including brand development, marketing and communications, public speaking organizational capacitybuilding and leadership development to strengthen their impact and amplify it to new audiences.

The Elevate Prize is designed to champion leaders, their organizations and their causes. Here’s how.

UNRESTRICTED FUNDING

We practice trust-based philanthropy, providing unrestricted funding (minimum $300,000).

TAILORED RESOURCES

Our programs are curated for each Elevate Prize recipient based on where they are and what they need.

AMPLIFICATION AND VISIBILITY SUPPORT

Our intensive personal and professional development programs help organizations amplify their impact and reach new audiences.

MENTORSHIP & COMMUNITY

We’re focused on community building, both between winners and with our network of partners and supporters.

This year, applications are by invitation only – which is where you play a vital role.

Introduce us…

to the organizations and people that inspire you

– innovators, activists, problem-solvers, thinkers and doers. People with big ideas that can ignite a movement. Organizations at a tipping point that the Elevate Prize can help grow, scale and make even more impact.

As a thank you, for every nomination we’ll be planting a tree through One Tree Planted.
