In 2015, we are pleased to announce three special-category prizes: The Purpose Prize for Financial Inclusion, a $25,000 award sponsored by MetLife Foundation, The Purpose Prize for Intergenerational Impact, a $25,000 award sponsored by The Eisner Foundation, and The Purpose Prize for Intergenerational Collaboration, a $25,000 award sponsored by The Eisner Foundation.
We would like to extend our deep appreciation to the following sponsors of The Purpose Prize.
The Atlantic Philanthropies
The Atlantic Philanthropies is dedicated to advancing opportunity, equity and human dignity. Established in 1982, when Chuck Feeney quietly committed virtually all of his assets to the foundation, Atlantic has since made grants approaching $8 billion. In keeping with Mr. Feeney’s “Giving While Living,” big-bet philosophy, Atlantic invests in systemic change to accelerate improvements in the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people. The foundation, which has operated in Australia, Bermuda, Cuba, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa, the United States and Viet Nam, will complete all grant making in 2016 and conclude operations shortly afterward.
