Prize philanthropy has become an increasingly popular tool for achieving strategic philanthropy. Philanthropic competitions can be a powerful way to achieve transformative change, spur innovation, raise awareness of important issues, propel topic and field leaders into the spotlight, and provide new access points for traditionally overlooked solution-providers. However, competitions also pose several challenges that need to be considered alongside the benefits.
Please join us for an insightful exploration of how philanthropic leaders are leveraging prize philanthropy. The discussion will also touch on how prize philanthropy contributes to transparency and equity, as well as how donors grapple with potential challenges of this approach.
