Thank you for your interest in The Elevate Prize! The application window for the 2021 prize is now closed.
Please check back with us soon to see who is among the finalists!

Nominate a hero for the Elevate Prize.

We are looking for leaders, innovators, activists, and problem-solvers who are impacting their community every day. Applicants should be leaders of non-profit organizations/public charities who have a history of impact and have the potential to inspire millions. Does this sound like a person you know? We want you to nominate them! Choose wisely, as we ask you to limit your nominations to only one person.

Shining a light on great work.

In 2020, we received nearly 500 nominations, including some from prominent names in business, science, technology – and some from people who simply know passion and great work when they see it.

We were delighted to get to know your heroes better. 54% of the people and organization nominated went on to apply for the prize (and can apply again in 2021 if they didn’t win this time around).


  • Your privacy is respected, by submitting this nomination, you give permission for your name and nominee’s name to be used for promotional materials for the Elevate Prize and their organization.

We always want to be transparent about our judging and selection process, so it’s important to note that though nominations are reviewed and appreciated, they do not weigh the process. Judging is robust and thorough – and independent of nominations.

Together we can make the 2021 Prize even more diverse, powerful, and impactful.
