The Council on Foundations is seeking nominations for its new Critical Impact Award to recognize grant-funded projects that have had a demonstrated impact on the common good and can serve as models for others in philanthropy. Awards will be given to foundations and their grantees.
The Council requests submissions from programs funded by family, independent, operating, public or community foundations, or by international or corporate grantmakers (either individually or in collaboration with others); have been underway long enough to document having had an enduring positive impact and have provided real philanthropic leadership by establishing philanthropy as the innovators or architects of social change. Special consideration will be given to programs that address poverty, public health, environment and disaster preparedness."
